Christchurch Art Gallery publications designed by UC senior lecturer in Graphic Design Aaron Beehre and his students, have picked up prestigious Australasian design awards.
It is with great pleasure that the Ilam School of Fine Arts | Te Kura Kōwaiwai announce the appointment of Conor Clarke to the position of half-time Lecturer in Photography.
Conor has spent the last decade between Berlin and Aotearoa New Zealand. During this time she has amassed an impressive body of work that blends aspects of conceptual and documentary photography practice, exploring such things as post-colonialism, ecology, and landscape representation through depicting familiar or generally overlooked objects and places.
Conor’s practice is a subtle unpicking of the role of photography today, its ability to critique inherited cultural definitions of what constitutes as nature and the way we look at it. She is represented by Two Rooms, Auckland.
Conor will join us at the start of Semester Two and we very much look forward to her joining the team and sharing her knowledge with us all.
