Jonas Balsaitis: Analogue is a survey exhibition of paintings, prints, and experimental films by Australian artist Jonas Balsaitis (b. 1948, Germany). The exhibition re-considers the artist’s use of ‘imaging systems’ in light of contemporary developments in data imagery and digital technologies. Particular focus is given to the translation of Balsaitis’ paintings into film, highlighting the artist’s dedication to find a new, more experimental mode of experience in a pre-digital age.
