Personal Space


Atong Atem (Aus) | Tanu Gago (NZ) |Janet Lilo (NZ) | Natasha Matila-Smith (NZ) | Campbell Patterson (NZ)

Curated by Serena Bentley, commissioned by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand with the support of Creative New Zealand, Personal Space is a 30 minute collection of five new artist cinema works presented between 6 February and 4 March 2020 in The Great Hall at The Arts Centre.

What do we call ‘Home’? What are our shared foundations and values? When you think about yours what does it look like, and what will it look like in the future? What does home mean to you?

Each artist was asked to respond to these questions about the idea of home. The concept was prompted in part by New Zealand-born curator Serena Bentley's 12 year residence in Melbourne.

The five artists have all responded to the brief in diverse ways; Atong Atem maps her journey from Ethiopia to Melbourne; Tanu Gago amplifies images of Pasifika masculinity; Janet Lilo offers a lament for the loss of the family home; Natasha Matila-Smith invites us into her bedroom to reveal her innermost thoughts; Campbell Patterson performs seemingly absurd actions in orange juice soaked underpants.
