The human body is pushed to its limits in Australian artist Mel O’Callaghan’s powerful seven-minute video work Ensemble. Exploring the idea of resilience in the face of violence, Ensemble features one man pitted against the visceral force of a jet of water.

Recently acquired by the NGV, the work is an expansive two channel video and is projected over a 20-metre-wide space. Using two frames, O’Callaghan isolates her subject in one and his opponents in the another.
