Inhabit is a 'artist in residence' series that profiles New Zealand based artists and creatives from varying
disciplines working with the landscape.
Inhabit provides an insight into New Zealand artists and residents producing work from different parts of the
country, where they call home. Inhabit explores the collaboration between the artist and the land,
whether that be through adding to or extracting from the landscape, the end outcome is going to be amalgamation
of both parties, you can’t have one ingredient without the other. The project examines to what
extent the artists are tied to where they inhabit, while also focussing on the creative process of each person
and their own individualised methods of forming their work. In addition, recounting personal stories that
have shaped who they are and the way they approach their work, describing the evolution of events that
led them to where they are now and where they see themselves going. The project spans over film
and printed matter.
