The most recent CIRCUIT (pod-)cast has just been posted online here. For me, the highlight is Mark Amery's interview with filmmakers Ken and Flo Jacobs by telephone from New York. Jacobs' work is now on view at the Adam Art Gallery and will be featured (in 3D!) in a screening later this month in Wellington. Mark also spoke with artist Nathan Gray, who has decided to withdraw from the Sydney Biennale, and with yours truly and curator Abby Cunnane on the topic of the Adam's Cinema and Painting exhibition. I will also be contributing an review of the show to an upcoming issue of the NZ Listener.
