Mindset Shipping - Stephen Bain & Gabriel White (Tāmaki Makaurau)
Presented as an episodic journey, Mindset Shipping leads us through everyday images of the city, revealing fictional worlds and a shared sense of disappearing.
Gabriel White is a multimedia artist whose films and videos use comedy and social commentary to probe urban situations. Stephen Bain is a live performance maker who uses public space to create theatrical situations from everyday interactions. Together they infiltrate the Pyramid Club with a sample of past work and a newly minted performance collage of image, sound, text and performance.
DSLB (Te Whanganui-a-Tara)
Ditzy Squall's Lunchbox (DSLB), is the solo project of Chrissie Butler from Mr Sterile Assembly fame, whose “sideways lyrics and staked up patterns” bring a glistening glean to erogenous ears.
Gabriel White is a filmmaker and musician from Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa. In the 1990s, he was a member of an experimental Auckland music group, Spacesuit, and over the past half decade has produced several albums and theatrical works with Richard von Sturmer as The Floral Clocks. His feature film Oracle Drive (2013) premiered at the NZIFF 2013 has been profiled on the documentary Out of the Mist. His latest work is Countdown Mountain, a book and film.
Stephen Bain lives and dreams in Tamaki Makaurau where he strays between community arts and live performance. Past theatrical works have morphed into public space events and installations, through sound, light and actions. His recent video series ‘Falling Unseen’, presented on the Pyramid Club website, looks past the work artists make to linger on the work of questioning everything.
