ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

DATES & TIMES

26 June - 24 July

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

This exhibition curated by Peter Todd, Through a different lens makes available a selection of 13 films by Joanna Margaret Paul which until now have had limited exposure. Joanna Margaret Paul (1955-2003) was a prolific artist with an inter-disciplinary practice as a film-maker, poet, photographer and painter over her lifetime she had limited exposure publicly. It is with great pleasure that the Ashburton Art Gallery is able to host this touring exhibition by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand that makes Paul’s film work accessible to the public for the first time.

The 13 experimental films on display are Jillian Dressing (1976), Task (1982), Sisterhood (1975), Seacliff (1975), Body/House (1975), Motorway (1971), Barrys Bay 2 (1975), Children Imogen (1975), Aberhart’s House (1976), Port Chalmers Cycle (1972), Thorndon (1975) and Napkins (1975)

These works explore themes of motherhood, domestic life, and the dichotomy between urban spaces and the natural world. Paul says “All my films, poems, paintings play more or less between inner and outer events”
