Daniel John Corbett Sanders, born 1994, is a Pākehā artist and curator based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. He is interested in critical geographies and social power structures, especially the relationship between LGBTTQIA+ citizens and political economies. His work is fantastical, and often references film techniques by playing with storyboarding, vignettes, and narrative.
Recent exhibitions include Wild Once More (Te Tuhi, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland 2022); Becoming Animals (Play_Station, Pōneke Wellington 2022); Broken Sovereignty (Lightship, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland 2022); Urban Nothing (RM Gallery and Project Space, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland 2021).
