Dane Mitchell on Post Hoc
Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū
Join artist Dane Mitchell in conversation about his project Post hoc, freshly opened at the gallery, which was first seen at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
Mitchell’s Post hoc conjures up the ghosts of our past, recalling millions of vanished, extinct and obsolete things. From submerged atolls to failed utopias, extinct languages to tax havens, long lists of lost entities are announced and transmitted, accumulating as a melancholy archive of loss.
