RUTH BUCHANAN

Buchanan (Te Āti Awa/Taranaki) is a New Zealand artist living in Berlin. Buchanan’s work is primarily concerned with the various systems at play in the production of culture. Often beginning in the archive, where case studies, artefacts, or works by other artists act as departure points for an interrogation of art as a discourse of organising the world in which we live. She works across performance, sculpture, text, audio, film, textiles, and graphics. She has developed projects at the Adam Art Gallery, Wellington; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; The Showroom, London, and the Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe.
