There's a terrific analysis of Julian Dashper's video artworks by Andrew Clifford that Mark Williams posted about a week ago on the CIRCUIT website. An excellent commentary on a still-underrated New Zealand artist. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Julian not long after I relocated to Wellington, and tragically, not long before the artist's death. Julian had made the effort to contact me largely owing to our mutual friend the American art historian David Raskin, who curated a retrospective of the artist's work. I have noticed in the past couple of years how enthusiastically my students have responded to Julian's writings and work and I imagine his influence will extend long into the future, particularly here in New Zealand, and appropriately for an artist who created so many projects that examined notions of both historical influence and temporality.
