Brit Bunkley is a New Zealand based artist whose art practice includes the proposal and construction of large scale outdoor sculptures, discrete objects, installations as well as the creation of “impossible” moving and still images and architecture designed using computer 3D modelling, video editing and image editing programs. His work explores an oblique sense of paranoid apocalyptic fear tempered with a sense of whimsy and irony - conditioned by a deep interest in politics, the environment and history.

 

International screenings include the White Box gallery in NYC and Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, in Paris at the Centre Pompidou in 2012, the Reina Sofia National Museum, Madrid, Spain in 2013, at the Gaîté Lyrique and The Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2016), and at the Cité Internationale des Arts in 2018. He took part in the Athens Digital Arts Festival and File Sao Paolo 2017 and 2018. Bunkley screened his video, Ghost Shelter/6 at The Federation Square Big Screen, Channels Festival 2017, Melbourne and at the Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Oberhausen, Germany in 2018.
