Gillies, John

John Gillies is one of Australia’s most significant practitioners in the field of video art whose work has been dedicated to illuminating the formal languages and histories of the medium. Gillies is noted for his exploration of appropriation and montage, and his integration of sound and performance practices within the medium of video. Works that illustrate the artist’s skilled use of these elements include Hymn (1983), Techno/Dumb/Show (1991), and My Sister’s Room (2000). Gillies currently teaches in Time Based Art at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales.
