Shaun Gladwell represented Australia at the 53rd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2009. The show was entitled MADDESTMAXIMVS and it brings together the artist’s trademark slowed-footage video installations of figures undertaking acts of physical virtuosity, with sculptural works and interventions into the fabric of the pavilion itself, such as a motorcycle that sticks in the outer wall of the building.

“MADDESTMAXIMVS had been developed over a two-year period and marks a shift from Shaun Gladwell’s earlier focus on urban environments and engages instead in a personal exploration of the boundaries and possibilities of a human relationship to the Australian hinterland.” Vernissage Art TV
