Introduced by Peter Todd
Drawing comparisons with the Orcadian filmmaker Margaret Tait, New Zealand artist Joanna Margaret Paul (1945-2003) worked prolifically across film, poetry and painting. Her film work chronicles motherhood and domestic life, urban settlement and the persistent presence of the natural world.
Curated by artist Peter Todd, this is the first collection to make Paul’s work available to an international audience. Its 13 works, all silent, were shot in the 1970s on 8mm and 16mm film and subsequently transferred to HD video.
‘Paul’s films were made in relative artistic isolation from avant-garde film discourse in the mid-1970s, but are rooted in an acute feminist politics that focuses on concerns of shared female social spaces and everyday domestic situations.’ —Frieze
