Lisa Reihana: in Pursuit of Venus [infected]

Lisa Reihana: in Pursuit of Venus [infected]

Experience the world premiere of one of the most ambitious screen-based projects from Aotearoa New Zealand, from one of the country's most admired artists. In 1804, Joseph Dufour created Les Sauvages de la Mer Pacifique, a 20-panel scenic wallpaper whose exotic subject matter referenced popular illustrations of the times and mirrored a widespread fascination with Captain Cook and de la Perouse Pacific voyages. Two hundred years later Lisa Reihana reanimates the wallpaper as a spectacular 26 metre wide panoramic video. Closes Sunday 30 August.
