The IMA presents a talk by Berlin-based New Zealand artist Ruth Buchanan on Thursday, 6 November, at 6pm, The Curtain, The Poodle, The Bodybuilder: Notes on Movement.

Buchanan has a BFA from Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Art (2002), and an MA (Fine Art) from the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2007), and was a fine arts researcher at Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2008-09). She interrogates systems that appear repeatedly in the production of culture; her process often begins in the archive where encounters with particular sites, formats of display, structures for grouping material, or spaces where the processing of material takes place are channelled into spatial or literary propositions. Recent exhibitions include Looking as or is Metronome, in A-Z Sammlung Marzona, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Ruth Buchanan/Ayse Erkmen, Hopkinson Mossman, Auckland; Version Control, Arnolfini, Bristol; On Performance, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Bregenz; Several Attentions, The Showroom, London. Buchanan publishes frequently including artists books The weather, a building (Sternberg Press, 2012) and Lying Freely (Casco Office for Art, Design, 2010).
