Lange’s Working Class

Pioneering filmmaker New Zealander Darcy Lange’s work screened in New York’s Lehmann Maupin gallery as part of group show, You & Me, Sometimes… A “textured” and “cool” show according to The New York Times, “about something, but not”, the exhibition is “a dance of history, politics, pop culture and conceptualism, where objects glance off one another without quite touching.” Lange is renowned as one of the first artists to use the long take and his prevailing theme ‘the worker’ includes studies of British factories and coal mines. Lange also made early studies in New Zealand of the Waitara Freezing Works and sheep farming in Ruatoria.
