DESCRIPTION

I like to think that a lot of my work sits between the sadness of leaving and the fear of return.

Works sampled from ten years of Australian artist Todd McMillan's absurd and melancholic video-art practice, on show in Roy Grounds' modernist masterpiece, The Round House - which now serves as the Mona library. Also on display is a collection of books, selected by the artist to show us the literary influences that have shaped his work.

I create my artwork hoping to mimic the condition of sitting down and reading a novel.

-Todd McMillan
