Unbuttoning Burton – By Tegan Brideson

Unbuttoning Burton
Tegan Brideson discovers the creative genius of Tim Burton’s career on exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.

There’s an exceptional wealth of creativity bursting at the seams in Melbourne’s Federation Square. The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is hosting Tim Burton’s Exhibition, complete with sketches, figures, costumes and photography spanning the legendary and unique director’s career.

Showcasing pages from his sketchbooks at school where he grew up in Burbank, California, there’s evidence that his signature style was emerging from a young age, and nurtured as he completed a four-year apprenticeship at Walt Disney Studio’s.

Burton’s creative history spans a wall in this exhibition, with his first work’s emerging in the late ‘70s. Illustrations and a bank of creative expression from 1980-1985 fill the space, before many of his famous titles from the likes of Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, Batman Forever, Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland are previewed on screens, transforming the atmosphere.

The neon glow through a Burtonarium tunnel of figures takes exhibition visitors to Burton’s world, like a peek into his very complicated mind.  It’s considered that the circles and triangles visually explored in his work all lend meaning to his state of mind as an expressive psychoanalysis.

If a trip to Melbourne between now and 10 October 2010 is on the agenda, Tim Burton’s Exhibition is well worth visiting. It’s central and easy to navigate, free cloak room services operate and all ages will appreciate the mastermind behind the uniqueness of some of Hollywood’s biggest films.
