Running from 19 July 2014 through to 15 February 2015 at the Gallery of Modern Art, Southbank Brisbane, is Hiraki Sawa's wonderful video works - "O 2009".

These amazing works are described as subtle reflections on ideas of time and motion, travel and dislocation by GOMA.

The works of Hiraki Sawa will leave contemporary art lovers pondering the interpretation and meaning long after they leave the Gallery. His video and sound installation moves through time cycles including the surface of the moon, the interior of an abandoned house, and the landscape of central Australia. His work deals with the real, unreal and surreal worlds.

For photos of Hiraki Sawa's works see the website.

Sawa's inspiration comes from his years of living between London and Japan.

The thought-provoking works are looked at from multiple perspectives and time cycles, with indepth images to free your imagination.

All works are accompanied by a soundtrack by Dale Berning which fits the mood perfectly.

Hiraki Sawa is world renowned and his works have been represented in many galleries particularly in Japan, the United Kingdom and Australia.

The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm at the Gallery of Modern Art.

For more information, see the GOMA website.
