Saturday 11 March, 2pm


This weekend we are pleased to host visiting Auckland-based artist Eddie Clemens who will discuss his expansive artwork Collector’s Edition Glitch (Viewing Bridge), currently on show in the exhibition Out of Site Works from the Victoria University of Wellington Art Collection. In conversation with Stephen Cleland, Clemens will introduce his source material—from unboxing Youtube videos to b-grade horror films to footage from big-budget franchises such as the Star Wars and Terminator series—and discuss how these subjects find their way into his varied sculptural and video-based projects.

Eddie Clemens was born in Rotorua and currently lives and works in Auckland. He holds a BFA in Painting from the School of Art, University of Canterbury (2000) and an MFA in Sculpture from Elam School of Fine Arts, The University of Auckland. In 2008 he held the Olivia Spencer-Bower Artist in Residence at the Christchurch Art Centre and in 2009 he was awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at the University of Otago. His works have been included in group and solo exhibitions throughout New Zealand, including: Wes Craven Marina, Gloria Knight, 2014, Carpet Burn, Papakura Art Gallery, 2014, Ask the Dust: 2003–2013, Rotorua Museum, 2013, The Obstinate Object, City Gallery Wellington, 2012, and De-building, Christchurch Art Gallery, 2011.
