23 June 2015. Free entry.
Join us for an artist talk by Nathan Gray, The Physics Room Artist in Residence in June/July.
During his stay Nathan will be continuing to develop his current series of works: Works<30s—an on-going, diaristic series of short videos that document simple actions and allow them to exist as discrete, singular events.
Working with self-imposed rules, this series continues Nathan’s strategy of utilizing the object as a score for action. While providing a method of research into the material constraints of everyday space through performance and improvisation, iterations of the Works<30s series have also been developed into larger projects such as Species of Spaces, presented at Cockatoo Island, 19th Sydney Biennale (2014).
Nathan has a background and interest in experimental music and is seeking to develop connections in Christchurch that might inform his interest in brevity, improvisation and material circumstance.
