One of Several Centres arises out of the performative actions between the people who live, work and holiday within Alice Springs. Alex Kershaw’s practice instigates playful interventions which are intended to shift peoples’ routines and expectations surrounding the town.
Sydney-based Kershaw works with video and photography to generate unexpected relationships between people and their terrain. Often spending extended periods researching locations and characters, everyday people become involved in the work. Through Kershaw’s quiet activism, the boundary between truth and invention is blurred.
