Shaun Gladwell: MADDESTMAXIMVS | Australian Pavilion | La Biennale di Venezia 2009

Shaun Gladwell represents Australia at the 53rd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2009. The show entitled MADDESTMAXIMVS brings together the artist’s trademark slowed-footage video installations of figures undertaking acts of physical virtuosity, with sculptural works and interventions into the fabric of the pavilion itself, such as a motorcycle that sticks in the outer wall of the building.

MADDESTMAXIMVS has been developed over a two-year period and marks a shift from Shaun Gladwell’s earlier focus on urban environments and engages instead in a  personal exploration of the boundaries and possibilities of a human relationship to the Australian hinterland.
