Steve Lovett's latest exhibition, Some People Who May (Not) Be Here
will be on at Art at Wharepuke in Kerikeri from 8 February to 4 March.
Opening Reception 5-7pm on Saturday 7 February - all welcome, Steve will be present.
Some People Who May (Not) Be Here is made up from the collections of printed images,
ephemera and photographic imagery collected and made for over 30 years.
This on-going project investigates the archives that we build up in albums, boxes, and now online
that reflect our individual and collective pre-occupations, interests, behaviour
and ideas about the world in which we live in and our place in it..
The secondary focus of this body of work is pre-digital methods of stripping images together
that would have once been common through out the commercial printing shops.
Working slow, in this manner has allowed for a stepping back from the deluge of digital and analogue images that surges toward us at every moment.
Steve Lovett is a practicing artist and has delivered an interdisciplinary print and digital media
at Manukau Institute of Technology's Faculty of Creative Arts for almost two decades.
His research focuses on questions of archives and operation of memory systems.
