The War Memorial has announced an interesting new exhibition as we wonder what we’re doing in Afghanistan:
A new video and photographic art installation was launched at the Australian War Memorial today as a part of the Memorial’s Official War Art Scheme.
Shaun Gladwell is a contemporary artist who works primarily in video, photography and sculpture. Double Field: Shaun Gladwell – Afghanistan, represents Gladwell’s complex response to the technology, landscapes and soldiers he experienced in Afghanistan. In particular, it explores the way soldiers are trained to observe and quickly respond to foreign environments.
