Microcosms

Max Bellamy

19 Nov – 12 Dec 2009
2009

A concerned child of film, television, and the Simpsons, Bellamy is determined to do his bit for a healthier screen culture. Part of a generation he characterises as fixated by screens of all sizes, he challenges the apathy this modern relationship fosters. He asks audiences to not just passively accept empty messages and instead figure out how they can be more critically engaged.

Too Orangey for Crows

James R Ford

27 Aug – 19 Sep 2009
2009

Having recently relocated to Wellington, Ford's first engagement with New Zealand audiences rests between two locales. Obsession; humor; failure; play; repetition; boredom: Ford delves into the activities and influences of his '80s childhood as a way of both embarking, and staying-put. "Kia-Ora," as the historically-rooted but culturally de-contextualised British softdrink proclaims, beckoning both a greeting and parting note at once.
