Glasgow International: David Rosetzky

We made our way to the Goethe Institute, which was only one street back from The Common Guild, to watch David Rosetzky’s one day screening of his video work How To Feel. From the body of projects featuring Australian artists in this GI, this is the only one in which an existing work, a major commission for ACCA in 2011, has been taken holus bolus and re-presented. It was really satisfying for us to see this again, its Melbourne location, accents and inflection of the voices, were of course more noticeable away from their roots. But, for us, the opportunity to present the mature work of an artist who has carefully refined his subject and its mediation over many years, was very satisfying. We stayed for an hour or so at the Goethe with many others coming and going, most often staying for extended duration picking up the subtle shifts of viewpoint and actions between one segment of the video and the next. It was interesting to think about David’s work in relation to film and video based projects (before mentioned) at Tramway for the GI, there being a connection in the desire to deconstruct and reconstruct cinematic spaces, explore the role of personal narrative, and the importance of the audience to the constructed self.
