2018 Finalists

Amos GEBHARDT

Artist statement: The series Evanescence contemplates the nature of impermanence. We are here as miraculously as we are not. The human form is captured in a state of transience as it merges with the materials of the earth; dirt, water and salt. I seek to draw attention to the way the human body reflects the same elements of the Earth’s surface. There is no separation. The imagery resists normative notions of humanness by offering a diverse portrait of being within the natural world.

Made in collaboration with forty performers, and creatives Melanie Lane, Katie Milright and Tim Mummery.

Thank you to the Traditional Custodians the Boorong people for permission to film on country.
