Could New Zealand’s geographical distance be seen as a strength? Is the rumour more potent than the work? How would reframing conceptualist Julian Dashper as a video artist remap New Zealand’s art history?
Ahead of CIRCUIT symposium Phantom Topologies our curator-at-large George Clark discusses Dashper as inspiration for This is not film-making: Artists' work for cinema, a programme of new artist cinema commissions premiering at City Gallery on 10 September.
Plus he gives us the low down on CIRCUIT symposium guests from the Philippines; Merv Espina, Martha and Jake Atienza.
