David Rosetzky, Living Together is Easy #3 (detail) 2002.
David Rosetzky creates intensely beautiful lens-based works exploring identity, subjectivity and relationships and regularly collaborates with professionals from the fields of theatre, dance, film and sound. Drawing on fifteen years of practice True Self: David Rosetzky Selected Works presents early portrait and longer duration videos, photographs, photo-collages and sculptures, revealing telling relationships between these aspects of the artist's practice. 

The exhibition allows us not only to see the consistency of Rosetzky's vision, but also to engage with a trajectory in his video that moves from lo-fi, singular portraits that borrow advertising's aura, through to cinematic, long-duration work. Included in the show is a major new video work Half Brother 2013, commissioned by the Centre for Contemporary Photography with support from Irene Sutton. A Centre for Contemporary Photography and NETS Victoria touring exhibition curated by Naomi Cass and Kyla McFarlane.
