In the new work for the Adelaide Biennial, Divided Worlds, Gebhardt immerses the viewer in a square room with four large projections. Each screen holds a familiar Australian landscape: a salt lake, a rock formation, a sandy desert and a waterfall in a forest. Forty individuals from diverse backgrounds have been chosen to expand normative ideas of the body. The ritual dance movements that unfold on screen amongst the ensemble have been scripted by Gebhardt to represent the becoming and decline of the human in and of the natural world.
