Still from Potato and Gravy, Sarah Jane Parton, 2012

Back in the early 1990s, friend, artist and then Elam School of Fine Arts intermedia student Tessa Laird enlisted my participation in making a video. Quite simply it involved one afternoon purchasing chicken dinners from the Kentucky Fried Chicken in Ponsonby Road, Auckland and then returning to my flat around the corner to get stoned and eat. We chewed the fat, as it were, for an hour or more, before the camera as witness.

Still from Manawanui (1996) by Brent Hayward

If New Zealand had a Cinema of Transgression it's founding artist would be the legendary Brent Hayward. Martin Rumsby reports from Mondo Feasto, a recent two-night survey of Hayward's films at Auckland's Audio Foundation.

Vincent Ward - film stills from The Whisper of the Trees and Breath, part of the cinematic installation Voyage II – Ardent Spirit (2011)

Our most iconic movie director has reinvented himself as an artist, transforming some of the themes that have populated his films into video installations, photography, and paintings. At the Govett Brewster last December, the works were housed in one location under the title Breath – the fleeting intensity of life. The disciplines have been split for the Auckland incarnation, with Inhale: moving image at the Gus Fisher, and Exhale: two dimensional works at the Pah Homestead.

Candice Stock, Running in the Starlight (2011)

I saw Running in the Starlight (2011) late last year when it was screened on Square2 at the City Gallery. I purposely went to check this video out because a friend had recommended it and I wasn’t disappointed. I really liked this work. It’s hard not to. Running in the Starlight speaks in the language of MTV – and that’s a language I understand. Basically it’s a music video. The artist - Candice Stock - appears as the singer or author of the song.
