Marcus Canning has pursued a varied individual and collaborative practice in the areas of sculpture, video art, theatre and festivals. In 2002 he designed the ‘Shishka-Car’ spectacle at the Adelaide Festival, and created the video work and inflatable set used in Buzz Dance Theatre’s ‘Cave’ production, which toured to Korea. In that year he curated the ‘Now You See It’ window installation exhibition in Midland and served as the Director of the Artrage Festival in Perth. Prior to this he was Creative Director of the Awesome Festival’s regional programme. Sculptural projects have included a pneumatic soft sculptural work, a balloon snake, which he created in collaboration with children in the remote community of Kalumburu in the Kimberley. Along with artist Sohan Hayes, Canning designed and constructed SymbioticA Central Laboratory 'PC2’, which was premiered at the 'Biofeel’ exhibition at the 2002 Biennale of Electronic Arts Perth (BEAP). In 2007 he collaborated with the Tissue, Culture and Art Project to design the vessel for the work 'No Ark’, which was shown at the 'Still, Living’ exhibition at the third Biennale of Electronic Arts Perth staged in that year.
