Cutting edge new media artists at SCA win major prize
27 May 2011
The Art Gallery of New South Wales announced yesterday that Sydney College of the Arts lecturers David Haines and Joyce Hinterding have won the $25,000 acquisitive Anne Landa Award for video and new media arts.
Haines and Hinterding's award winning work, The outlands invites visitors to take control and conduct their own voyage through an immersive digital world of forests, islands and futuristic interiors.
David Haines, a lecturer in photomedia, has been a practising artist for nearly 20 years and has exhibited in museums, festivals and alternative exhibition spaces, including installations for the Tate Gallery, Liverpool; Artspace, Sydney; Sao Paulo Biennale 2004; the Art Gallery of New South Wales; Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art, and the 13th Biennale of Sydney.
His collaborations with Joyce Hinterding, a lecturer in jewellery and object design, have produced major works that have been shown in Tasmania, Sydney and Madrid, and have been featured in the opening exhibition for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, as well as in Japan, Europe and North America. An artist who exhibits both nationally and internationally, Hinterding is recognised for her work across a range of discipline areas, including sculpture, object arts, sound art and digital arts.
The Anne Landa Award was the first biennial exhibition in Australia for moving image and new media work, with an acquisitive award of $25,000. The award was established in honour of Anne Landa, a Trustee of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, who died in 2002.
