Those of you who've been keeping up with this blog know my views on Gabriel White's video and photographic work. I wrote a review of his previous film Aucklantis (2006) here and a brief account of our own collaborations A Town Like Parataxis (2000) and The Perfect Storm (2000) here.

On Thursday he's launching his latest work Tongdo Fantasia. This film has been a long time in the making. It's been refined and recut until it represents the essence of a Westerner's alienation - and, at the same time, paradoxically, curious at-homeness - in a strange new cultural setting: in this case, South Korea.

A suite of photographs from the work were included in Landfall 214. These, and hopefully more besides, will be on exhibition at OUi boutique for the next month. So come on up to K Rd this Thursday to check it out. You really won't regret it.
