Gavin Hipkins

b. 1968, New Zealand

Gavin Hipkins’ photographs and films consider the ability of the camera to simultaneously capture the reality of the world and the deceptions and illusions of utopian fictions. 

In 2010 he started making fragmented narrative short films that call on nineteenth-century literary references and adapts these writings to contemporary settings. His projects engage film as a cinematic art that blurs definable genres between drama, documentary, art films, and experimental narrative structures.
