Artist in Residence /
24th January – 31st January, 2024
HIBALL will be utilising this residency to research and develop a new work for a group exhibition opening at The Lock-Up at the end of the year.
Based in Melbourne, HIBALL are a director duo specialising in moving image for the digital world. Their work dances between art, fashion and technology – exploring speculative realities and memory. Operating between digital and analogue, their approach remains rooted in emotion and human experience.
Helmed by Alexandra Kirwood and Stanton Cornish-Ward, HIBALL has built a reputation creating intelligent, conceptual, stylized films. Their work has been accepted into esteemed BAFTA Award-qualifying festivals such as Cork Film Festival and Aesthetica Film Festival, as well as other notable festivals such as Dublin International Film Festival, Leiden International Short Film Festival, and Sydney World Film Festival. They have been part of official selections of film festivals in Aotearoa (New Zealand), Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, The Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Mexico, UK and USA.
