Can an image plane be traversed like the threshold of a building, moving from inside to outside and back again? And if so, what are the effects of this movement? Have our bodies become so used to crossing the image plane that they accept and absorb the shrapnel of this collision? What does this kind of co-existence with images mean for our social relations? Mark Amery talks to Andrew Kennedy, curator of The Non-Living Agent, an installation at Te Tuhi from 11 June 2016 - 24 July 2016 featuring work by Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc (Fr), Dorota Broda (NZ), James Richards (UK), Sorawit Songsataya (NZ).
