Projection Series #2: Six Artists Respond to the Poetry of Joanna Margaret Paul
An ambitious range of new commissions inspired by a selection of Paul's poetry.
Paul's poetry provides the catalyst for a collection of new moving image works by six artists: Nova Paul, Rachel Shearer, Sonya Lacey, Miranda Parkes, Shannon Te Ao and the collective Popular Productions.
At the heart of the Len Lye Centre's cinema programme is the return of the Govett-Brewster's Projection Series - our quarterly film programme surveying the landscape of historical and contemporary fine art filmmaking.
The cinema welcomes you to see historical experimental film, contemporary artist’s moving image and regular film festival programming, from historical experimental film to contemporary artist’s moving image.
Six Artists Respond to the Poetry of Joanna Margaret Paul, the second in our Projection Series, presents a programme of short moving image works shot at home, in industrial space, nature and using a microscope within salt letter form.
Each film is inspired by a selection of Paul's poetry, celebrating the resonance of her work and offering the catalyst for a collection of new work by a range of contemporary New Zealand artists.
