Dani Marti Black Sun

Dani Marti (MFA 2007) presents his first West Australian solo exhibition as part of the Perth International Arts festival. Working across video, installation, public art and canvas, Marti combines video and textiles to construct unconventional portraits in woven paintings and performance video works.
These portraits often reflect on encounters with family, lovers and strangers, offering poignant reflections about intimacy and sexuality. The Black Sun presents new hard-woven canvas, audio and video works that are epic in scale, and use unexpected materials including stainless steel scourers, rubber, leather, necklaces and plastic.
