We are delighted to be able to show Joyce Campbell’s highly acclaimed video Flightdream in Wellington and to announce the release of new digital stills specially created for her Wellington exhibition.
Flightdream is an immersive visionary voyage into the barely known depths of the oceans — a visual response, on a mythological scale, to the erosion of the actual and conceptual sublime in a time of ‘rapidly accelerating global environmental crisis’. Joyce’s work asks the viewer to feel and experience the process of creation and destruction and asks questions about perception and the role art can play in enhancing understanding of environmental issues. The new digital stills, while referencing celluloid and the cinematic, allow time to linger with the ever-mobile imagery of the video.
Opening: 5.30–7.30pm, Tuesday 4 October 2016
Closing: 29 October 2016
Location: Bartley + Company Art, 56A Ghuznee Street, Wellington, New Zealand
