Vincent Ward’s memorable filmic work has long offered a powerfully original contribution to Aotearoa New Zealand’s visual experience. This exhibition draws together Ward’s career as a feature filmmaker and his early training in fine arts. His recent exploration of the still image presents works that coalesce photography, painting and digital imaging alongside filmic vignettes and soundscapes. “I am working to find an alchemical marriage somewhere between the worlds of motion, film and painting,” Ward says.

Ward’s ongoing concerns with metamorphosis, light, darkness and immersive experience has led him to create a series of physically imposing works that delve into otherworldly landscapes and transcendent states.

This exhibition is the first survey of filmmaker Vincent Ward’s work within an art museum context. A publication with a commissioned essay by writer and playwright Louis Nowra will accompany the exhibition.
