The Brain

This was a exhibition of video works curated by myself and presented within a sculptural installation, designed and constructed by artist Paul Cullen. The Brain could be seen as an idiosyncratic spatial and conceptual diagram of a brain, using video to map questions both academic and amateur. Seventeen single-channel video works will explore themes including; landscapes of perception and cognition, tangible thoughts, altered states, phantom limbs, TV brains, dream archives, memory files, and the mind body connection.

The Brain is commissioned by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aoteoroa New Zealand in partnership with Te Uru with the assistance of Creative New Zealand.

Artists: Paul Cullen, Megan Dunn, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Ronnie Van Hout, Laresa Kosloff, Owen Kydd, Sonya Lacey, Colie Leung, Richard Maloy, Michael Nicholson, Kim Pieters, Rachel Shearer, Daniel Von Sturmer, Rainer Weston and Layne Waerea.
