Join us to hear artist Jonathan Kay talk about his exhibition Icebound. Kay will discuss how he utilises a range of photographic techniques, from historical processes to latest contemporary technologies to interrogate glacial landscapes. He will also discuss how a collaboration between art and science might facilitate an intimate connection that is based on both factual and poetic modes of communicating.

Jonathan Kay is a photographic artist and lecturer in photography living in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. His practice focuses on blurring the boundaries of art and science to render the unseen and challenge notions of landscape. His methodology employs photographic interventions within the landscape that are site-specific and responsive.

Exhibitions include Cryosphere at Ashburton Art Gallery & Jhana Millers Gallery, Negative Mass at Gus Fisher Gallery, WAI—Manga Maha, Awa Kotahi | One River, Many Streams at Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History, and Nothing but Dust at Wellington Museum. Kay teaches at Whiti o Rehua School of Art, Massey University, New Zealand.
