Melbourne-based artist Anne Scott Wilson often site-specific art practice explores the ways in which meaning is made through motion, primarily using video and photography. Her works aim to evoke an emotional response from the viewer, involving a haptic physicality and a somnambulistic body – the intuitive body that houses all memory of movement, voluntary and involuntary in reaction and response to space. Following her recent work using light, colour and pinhole cameras, Wilson created new architectural interventions at the Post Office Gallery, bringing the outside in and taking the inside out, altering and reconfiguring the space with light and colour.
