A new work is screened every two months in this dedicated space for AGWA’s growing audio visual acquisitions. The space debuts with David Rosetzky’s 2007 work Nothing Like This.

The work is largely set by the ocean and follows the almost dream like interactions of a group of young people. Suffused with greens, yellow and refracted light, the film draws on the stylised look of contemporary advertising modes. A tone of slow melancholy builds as the sound track records the imagined monologues of youthful self-doubt and questioning. Languor and unease pervade this contemplative evocation of life, while the beauty of the unfolding landscape contrasts with the young players’ personal reflections.
