A projection experience in the Clarice Beckett retrospective at Geelong Gallery that allows visitors to see a place special to them as Beckett would have painted it.
Sandpit worked with Geelong Gallery to create a stand alone experience that concludes the Clarice Beckett exhibition ‘Atmospheres’.
Visitors are asked to select from three painting styles from Beckett’s iconic oeuvre and then enter the street address of a location that has special meaning to them. Using google street view, the projection mapped walls transform, bringing their special place to life, filtered through Becketts signature style.
The experience is designed to be an ephemeral moment that contextualises the exhibition visitors have just walked through, and brings it home on a personal level.
Beckett was a Victorian painter working in the early 20th Century, renowned for her nuanced, emotive portraits of the Melbourne and greater Victoria area. Largely overlooked during her lifetime, she is now considered one of Australia’s greatest artists.
