Sally Ann McIntyre

Sally Ann McIntyre’s two transmission artworks are '–. .-.. .- –. ..- . / -.– . .- .-. (plague year)' (2021) a fifteen part micro-cast radio serial narrowcasting a daily poetic reworking of Defoe’s A Journal of the Plague Year (1722), and 'a private swamp / was where this tree grew feathers once: a radio memorial in four movements.' (2011-12), a 15 minute pirate transmission work made within the destroyed buildings of four of the artist’s old flats in the so-called 'red zone' of inner city Christchurch, New Zealand, when the city was off limits after the massively destructive earthquake of 2011. The work was a private mapping exercise, a re-calibration of the destroyed, unrecognisable city.

Campbell Walker

Campbell Walker's three works are all walking-based video actions. 'An arc is just a line you can bend (clockwise)' (2020) and 'Going through the motions (on foot)' (2021) present externalised and internalised responses to the pandemic experience in Melbourne, going respectively to the edge of the permitted universe, and the edge of the artist's endurance. An earlier Dunedin-based work, 'Precariat Trees' (2015), celebrates the unauthorised and gets bogged down in the bureaucratic.
