Gavin Hipkins: The Homely II

22 Jan – 10 Apr

Disorienting strange-yet-familiar scenes

Free entry.

This exhibition is the long-awaited sequel to New Zealand artist Gavin Hipkins’ celebrated series, The Homely (1997-2001), a frieze of 80 photographs that Hipkins has described as a ‘post colonial gothic novel’.

Entirely shot with an amateur film camera, The Homely ll (2001-17) evokes the sense of unease that young nations face in defining nationhood. It explores our differences and similarities with the United Kingdom by shuffling and combining locations to form a fragmented narrative of disorienting strange-yet-familiar scenes.
