Video documentation of the 2006 Biennale of Sydney, curated by Charles Merewether. 'Zones of Contact' was the unifying concept, referring to the temporal dimensions of the spaces in which people encounter one another and other cultures, their sense of self and their histories. Working through visual and sensory forms of reflection - including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, fabric and stitching, photography, video, film, performance, voice and sound - artists explore local and trans-cultural encounters with the world. They address the legacy and memories of living within these zones of contact or seek to define a space in which the viewer may perceive the contours of an aesthetic utopia. Featured on this set of two discs are views of the exhibits, artist performances and talks.
