Peter kennedy's the photographs' story

The dialectical image as research

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Creative practice as research in moving image and sound has, since the 1960s, been central to the methodologies and works of many moving image artists in Australia. Peter Kennedy’s conceptual, performance, installation and light works mobilize radical political insight with richly complex formal strategies. Kennedy’s recent The Photographs’ Story (2015), working with a set of still photographs depicting the death of Mohammad Al-Dura in Gaza in June 2000, is examined for the manner in which formal strategies in moving image installation can be understood as a series of propositions regarding creative practice as research, arguing that the ‘poetic dimension’ of a work of art is the heart of its critical knowledge and the image, the vehicle for its transmission.
