The Art Of The Game

Photographers Trent Parke and Narelle Autio are partners in life and art and have a knack for creating uniquely Australian stories that bring alive the beauty and idiosyncrasy of ordinary life. After their son Jem asks them why his younger brother can bowl so fast, the family build a professional cricket pitch in their own backyard and spend two years filming this artwork investigating the physics, motion and beauty of the game, all to try and answer the simple question: Can sport really be considered art?

Made in collaboration with filmmaker Matthew Bate, this unique hybrid documentary uncovers the story of one family making a very personal artwork that is the summation of their entire lives.
