In August 2014 NGV Studio will host an extraordinary exhibition where visitors will be greeted by a group of bizarre interactive human-like robots that will be let loose in the foyer of NGV Australia.
Dr Wade Marynowsky is an anti-disciplinary artist who works across robotics, immersive and interactive installation, performance, music and video. His practice typically draws on technology and programmed structures to create works that straddle humour, high-camp and a host of unnerving thematic orientations to absorbing effect.
Autonomous improvisation will give an insight into Marynowsky's remarkable artistic practice. It will include interactive robotics, sound sculpture, audiovisual installations and performances. It will also reveal a surprising and dramatic new work that Marynowsky will be developing at NGV Studio during the course of the exhibition.
