Matthew Sleeth presents a cinematic three-channel video installation featuring custom built drones with live video feeds, laser set-design, opera singers with an original libretto that combine to drive a narrative of desire, fear and destruction. Loosely structured around the myth of Icarus, the installation is a poetic exploration of our broader love affair with new technologies.
Join Matthew Sleeth in conversation with Carriageworks Director Programs, Daniel Mudie Cunningham at 11.30am on Saturday 22 June.
