Amos Gebhardt brings a cinematic force to large scale, moving image installations and photography, collaborating with performers, choreographers and musicians. Exploring intersections between culture, nature and the body, Gebhardt gives power to both human and non-human narratives.
Gebhardt is the recipient of the inaugural Adelaide Studios Artist Residency (2019), presented by the South Australian Film Corporation in partnership with SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival. The resulting moving image work Small acts of resistance premieres on 16 October 2020 at Samstag Museum of Art and the Adelaide Film Festival in October 2020. Family portrait, from the related photography series, is a 2020 Bowness Photography Prize finalist.
Recent works include the video installations Lovers (2018) and Evanescence (2018), both selected for the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, and There Are No Others (2016) presented at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne.
A Sidney Myer Creative Fellow (2014) and Masters graduate of AFTRS, Gebhardt’s work has been exhibited at M+ Museum, Hong Kong; ACMI, Melbourne; MONA, Hobart; Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne and screened on SBS and ABC. Gebhardt created visuals for Kate Miller-Heidke’s 2016 Helpmann Award-winning concert with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra at Hobart's MOFO Festival.
Gebhardt directed Second Unit on Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth (2015), starring Marion Cotillard premiering in competition at Cannes Film Festival.
