Unnerved: The New Zealand Project
GOMA 1 May - 4 July 2010
'Unnerved' explores a particularly rich dark vein that recurs in New Zealand contemporary art and cinema. Psychological or physical unease pervades many works in the exhibition, with humour, parody and poetic subtlety.
Unnerved takes a really close look contemporary art and cinema coming out of NZ and it's all here at GoMA. The strange awkwardness of the new generation of New Zealanders is contrasted with the intense history of this island nation. But somehow it all comes together and provides for a very interesting experience.
