Performing Cinema presents a range of video works by Australian artists that turn to cinema as a method through which to interpret performance. Each work focuses on human performance, and harkens to histories of performance art. However, instead of attempting a stark documentary recording of an ephemeral gesture, the works turn to cinema, its history and codes, and consider the potential of this to elaborate performance.
