To commence 2022, Michael Reid Sydney + Berlin embarked on an ambitious collaboration with Narelle Autio and Trent Parke in hosting an iteration of The Summation of Force, a film produced by the artist duo that has never shown in Sydney.
Premiering on Thursday December 9th and showing throughout the summer, The Summation of Force exhibited at Michael Reid Sydney and was collectors’ first opportunity to acquire still images from this very important work of art. On view were large format stills, a portfolio of photographs from The Summation of Force, and an installation of original ephemera used in the production of the film.
Summation of Force is an astounding moving image installation initially launched at the Samstag Museum of Art to widespread acclaim in 2017. Regarded as masterpiece collaboration, the poetic and haunting video installation is breathtaking example of the cinematic vision that informs the photographic practice of both Narelle Autio and Trent Parke.
