An exhibition presenting recent works from NZ artists exploring various aspects of performance—mediated through the cinematic, moving image and live action. These works hinge on the ‘fixed’ in pursuit of an open-ended discussion. Devices such as the script, set-task and existing historical material provide the catalyst for generative acts. ‘Simple’ binary relationships between the cognitive and physical; the mechanical and the lyrical, the ‘old’ and ‘new’ may provide an initial starting point to discussions around much more complex, ambiguous and expansive propositions.
