Sam Cranstoun

Opening: Wednesday 27 November 6-8pm
Dates: 27 November-14 December 2013

Sam Cranstoun’s practice focuses on the importance of contemporary image culture in shaping a collective understanding of the past. As history strives to obtain some level of historical ‘truth’, we as viewers grow to rely on photographs, videos, re-enactments and dramatizations as a way of interpreting and decoding past events. This dependence on highly visual and inherently flawed systems of representation becomes problematic, forcing us to question the veracity of history as a construct. For this exhibition, Cranstoun explores the 2011 assassination of Osama bin Laden (code name Geronimo). Cranstoun investigates the visual language used to depict this event, as well as the different ways it has been represented through recent popular culture.

Based in Brisbane, Sam Cranstoun graduated from the Queensland University of Technology in 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours). Since then, Cranstoun has exhibited extensively throughout Australia in various group and solo shows, as well as taking part in the Tokyo Cool Downtown Media Festival in 2010. His recent solo exhibitions include 'The Divine Right of Hands' at Metro Arts as well as 'Oil!' at Boxcopy, both in 2011, and 'Fox River Rising' at Milani Gallery in Brisbane.

Sam Cranstoun is represented by Milani Gallery, Brisbane.
