A Map So Big It Blocks the Sun is a new film by Quentin Lind, taking its name from Jorge Luis Borges' On Exactitude in Science, a short story in which an empire builds a 1:1 scale map in pursuit of the perfect cartography. Using this text as a starting point, Lind maps a space for ritual magic in an environment darkened by dry rationalism. Taking cognisance of gothic literature, moments of the past intrude upon the present and time stands still.
Quentin Lind is a Manukau born, Manawatu raised artist who completed his MFA at Elam School of Fine Arts in 2016. His work examines geographic identity and is heavily influenced by visual and cultural languages specific to the city he grew up in.
