Exhibition opening Thursday 18 September, 6-8pm
Melbourne-based artist Nina Ross delves into linguistic domain with her digital video work The language between us (2011), a pithy play on the process of language acquisition/exchange, and showing in NCCA’s Screen Room. Her interest in the subject stems from having spent several years living in Norway, ‘learning Norwegian’, as she writes, ‘for my partner’, and grappling anew with the task of making a language one’s own. In 2013 Ross received a Master of fine art (research) degree from Monash University, Melbourne. And was awarded the Vice-Chancellor’s commendation for masters excellence for her thesis Finding a voice: An exploration of the impact of language acquisition on identity using self-protraiture performance video.
