NZ's finest art podcast returns! This month; the Auckland Triennial has kicked off promising a glimpse of Auckland's future - but does it deliver? Andrew Clifford reports. Down in the capital Thomasin Sleigh and Michelle Menzies look at Samin Son TV; no doubt a fierce live performer but does it work on video?
Someone Else features eight international and New Zealand artists with six videos contributed by the international contingent, and three two-dimensional pieces - two photographs and a vinyl on vinyl work - from New Zealanders Edith Amituanai, Ronnie van Hout, and Sharon Margaret Russell. One of Amituanai's trademark photographs and one of van Hout's text works which reads ‘BE SOMEONE ELSE’ are hung at the opening of the exhibition next to the introductory wall text. The exchange between these two works establishes a loose thematic framework for the exhibition.
