Festival goers to be treated for ‘Art Anxiety’

Festival goers to be treated for ‘Art Anxiety’ at City Gallery Wellington

Jason Maling: The Physican

March 1st

During the NZ Festival, City Gallery is aware that many people will be suffering from ‘Art Anxiety', or what has come to be known as KUNST ANGST. In response to this, City Gallery has called on the help of Melbourne based, Wellington artist Jason Maling aka The Physician to provide refuge and to address a range of cultural maladies, including ‘Metaphobia’ and ‘Generalised Indifference Disorder’.

Maling is returning to Wellington to offer a unique one-on-one programme of personalised rituals for all ages aimed at clearing unwanted contemporary anxieties.

“Anxiety is the disease of the 21st Century - if you haven’t got any, there’s probably something wrong with you” says Maling, “I work at the coal-face of modern gallery malaise. Listening, talking, treating, transmuting, retooling.”

The Physician will be seeing patients from 1 encounter him doing his rounds throughout the gallery during his residency.

Appointments to see The Physician can be made by visiting www.ThePhysician.info or calling the Kunst Angst Helpline on 04 801 3021

About Jason Maling

Jason Maling is a Wellington artist whose work explores individual and collective expressions of play through processes of public invitation, exchange and negotiation. Situated somewhere between comedy and critique, his projects happen where they need to and use what they must, combining people, live performance, graphic design, text, and object making.

Maling’s recent forays into clinical practice are born of a fascination with the theatre of medicine - the myth of the artist and the things we are willing to do in-between. He claims to have absolutely no medical training beyond once practicing mouth to mouth on a latex dummy in standard 4 PE class and being able to apply a Band-Aid without letting the sticky bits touch each other.
