A recess implies a suspension of time, or a break in formal proceedings. It is also an indented space created by natural or human building, a space connected to but apart from the rest. This indent in time or space defines an approach to exhibiting contemporary moving image works, drafts and creative texts.

recess.net.au promotes and facilitates new modes of artistic production, output and accessibility of current video and film works in Australia and overseas. For this exhibition, recess draws from diverse points across the lands that make up contemporary Australia to showcase artists who explore documentary and fiction through experimental approaches to the video medium.
Telling stories is at the core of these digital works, recess presents will run entirely online to continue to tell these stories to at-home audiences.
During ‘recess presents’, each week a new video and complementary text will appear online. Curator, Olivia Koh says, “As one work is phased out another appears, so that the sequenced works inform each other like a string of sentences, or a body spinning in the landscape – a collection of meanings that are not definitive but always on the move.”
