Auckland Festival of Photography presents Talking Culture.
In Discussion: 45 mins + Q&A
In their 2020 body of work, PANDEMANIAC, UK photographer Mitchell Moreno used their time in self-isolation to consider what a visual language of mental disorder might look like. The resulting self-portraits are a playful and upsetting comment on not only the current crisis but wider themes of fear, desire and mental illness. Moreno will be joining us to discuss the creative necessity behind this series and how the past year has changed their way of working. Moreno will be in conversation with Louise Fedotov-Clements, curator of Format Festival Derby, where PANDEMANIAC was recently exhibited.
As part of the Festival's Isolation theme PANDEMANIAC is on show at Studio One Toi Tū from 31 May - 8 June.
