Eye to Eye by David Cross
11 July 2002. Free entry.
Eye to Eye was an extended duration performance piece by Wellington based artist David Cross. This piece was the latest in a series of works the artist produced in Australia and New Zealand, exploring the relationship between the body, abjection and sexuality. Working at the intersection of performance, video and installation, Eye to Eye examined the pleasure and pain of seeing, speculating on new ways of understanding the body as a volatile entity.
David Cross is Senior Lecturer at The School of Fine Arts, Massey University, Wellington. He has shown recently at the Australian Centre of Contemporary Art, Melbourne and Perspecta 99 in Sydney as well as the Adam Gallery, Wellington.
