Hectic city scenes are transformed into contemplative, time-bending meditations of extraordinary beauty in the hands of celebrated Australian video artist Daniel Crooks.

Four remarkable works, all created using Crooks’ distinctive "time-slicing" technique, stretch and fragment everyday sights, disrupting not only our visual experience, but our perception of time itself.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is the spell-binding "Static No. 12 (seek stillness in movement)", which features an elderly man practicing tai chi in Shanghai’s Xujiahui Park. Celebrating the slow physical poetry of that discipline, Crooks turns an intimate, "ordinary" moment into a powerful, complex contemplation on the movement of the body through space and time.

Christchurch Art Gallery's exhibition space at 209 Tuam Street (above C1 Espresso) is open 10am–5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am–4pm, Saturday and Sunday.
