Scott Redford, This is an art video, digital video, duration 1 min 32 sec, 2020.

Guzzler is pleased to present a new video by renowned Queensland artist Scott Redford (b. 1962), his first solo exhibition in Melbourne in over a decade. Redford’s work combines modernist forms with vernacular references to the Gold Coast and male youth subcultures. Filmed on location at Guzzler, his new work depicts three young men engaging in an iconoclastic act, sawing apart a custom-made surfboard, its polished symmetries reminiscent of a minimalist sculpture. Redford has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally, and is represented in all major Australian public collections.
