Face to Face juxtaposes multi-faceted works by three distinguished artists: Shaun Gladwell, Carsten Höller and Jon Tarry. It is the first time Höller has exhibited work in Western Australia, and it also premieres new work from Gladwell and Tarry. In dedicated gallery spaces the work of each artist provides a dialogue between sound, image and the viewer. Featuring film shot in diverse situations in the Congo, Paris and Perth, the artists unravel the intoxicating power of performance be it solitary or to a mass crowd, competitively or in private.

Face to Face is a mesmerising experience where the intensity of three distinct works is amplified by their engagement with each other and their enticement to share in their energy.
