Air to Atmosphere
215 x 280mm
Edition of 250
David Rosetzky’s Air to Atmosphere is an interdisciplinary project made in collaboration with members of the LGBTQIA+ community on Dja Dja Wurrung Country in Central Victoria. Stemming from a series of in-depth conversations Rosetzky initiated with participants, the project unfolds through photography, filmmaking, choreography, performance, songwriting, poetry, publishing and social encounter.
These diverse elements are brought together for the first time in a major exhibition commissioned by Castlemaine Art Museum as part of the 2023 Castlemaine State Festival. At the exhibition’s core is a two-channel video installation—in which participants share honest, detailed accounts of their lives—and a suite of colour photographic portraits, offering insights into and representations of LGBTQIA+ experience in a regional setting.
Produced on the occassion of the exhibition, the publication documents and extends Rosetzky’s collaborations with the local community. It features conversation transcripts, original song lyrics, a new essay by Professor Anne Marsh and poems by Terence Jaensch, alongside full-colour reproductions of the photographic portraits and video stills. Highlighting the voices of participants, each book features a unique colour treatment and quote drawn from their recorded conversations with Rosetzky.
