Artist Floor Talk: Jonathan Kay

201 Eastbourne St East, Hastings

Join us to hear artist Jonathan Kay talk about his exhibition Ice Field. Kay will discuss how he utilises a range of photographic technologies, from historical processes to latest contemporary technologies to interrogate glacial landscapes. He will also discuss how a collaboration between art and science might facilitate an intimate connection that is based on both factual and poetic modes of communicating.

Jonathan Kay is a photographic artist and lecturer in photography living in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. His practice focuses on blurring the boundaries of art and science to render the unseen and challenge notions of landscape. His methodology employs photographic interventions within the landscape that are site-specific and responsive.

Exhibitions include Cryosphere (Ashburton Art Gallery and Jhana Millers Galler) Negative Mass (Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland), WAI—Manga Maha, Awa Kotahi | One River, Many Streams (Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History), and Nothing but Dust (Wellington Museum). He completed a MFA with distinction at Massey University, Wellington, in 2013.

Free, no booking required.
