Hallucinating Time: artist Shubigi Rao and curator Vera Mey in conversation



Singaporean artist Shubigi Rao will be in conversation with Vera Mey, International Programme Director at Te Tuhi, at her exhibition, Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book, presented by Te Tuhi at Te Wai Ngutu Kākā Gallery. Against the background of the exhibition, and Rao’s ongoing project, Pulp III, they will discuss her artistic practice as closely linked to writing fiction, documenting history and reading, a process which Rao has likened to "hallucinating time".

Rao’s exhibition, Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book, takes the form of a book, film and paper maze, to explore the precarity and persistence of endangered languages, the futures of knowledge, public and alternative libraries, and the cosmopolitanism of regional print communities that have blossomed and waned in historic centres of print.

Rao’s artist book is available to purchase, exclusively at the exhibition

The talk between Rao and Vera Mey takes place within the exhibition space and is free and open to everyone, no booking required.
