At the awards ceremony on September 4th, I was very honoured to win the Fulbright- Wallace residency. I will be going to Headlands Centre for the Arts in San Francisco for three months from September 2018. The application process was rigorous and highly competitive so I was surprised and very excited to find out I was shortlisted. The Director of Fulbright New Zealand, Penelope Borland interviewed me along with four esteemed artists who have all been recipients of the award; Richard Maloy, Ruth Watson, Phil Dadson and Steve Carr.
I Am Here, the two channel video work I made in collaboration with composer Charlie Ha, is in the Wallace Art Awards exhibition, representing The Exquisite Wound. This video and the work of all the finalists and winners can be seen at The Pah Homestead in Auckland until 12th November 2017. The exhibition tours to The Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville and then on to The Academy Galleries, in Wellington.
