Amos Gebhardt’s cinematic works draw on sonic abstraction, dance, slow motion and time lapse to form large scale video installations and photographs. In the study of the body as archive of histories, Gebhardt challenges normative notions of humanness to reveal the brutal, ephemeral and interconnected nature of being. Extending beyond an anthropocentric world-view, Amos’ installations map both human and non-human narratives sparking collaborations with a range of musicians, performers, choreographers and sound artists.
After graduating from AFTRS with a Masters in Directing, Gebhardt has created moving image works for gallery exhibition, cinema and broadcast, exhibiting at AGSA and Samstag Museum as part of the 2018 Adelaide Biennial, ACMI, MONA, Monash Gallery of Art, Gertrude Contemporary, Carriageworks, SBS and ABC. Gebhardt was a recipient of the Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship, awarded Kodak’s New Director of the Year and nominated for Rising Talent at the IF Awards. In 2016, Gebhardt made the visuals for Kate Miller- Heidke’s concert with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, winning a Helpmann Award.
Gebhardt directed Second Unit on Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard premiering in competition at Cannes.
