New Zealand D-Photo - - FOCUS NEWS -

With the Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy in June fast ap­proach­ing, the An­nual Com­mis­sion has been awarded to Janet Lilo. This year’s An­nual Com­mis­sion is to be awarded by Baker+Dou­glas — the New Zealand–based pub­lisher of fine-art photo books and apps spe­cial­iz­ing in the work of lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional pho­to­graphic and mov­ing-im­age artists.

Lilo works in dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy, video, and in­stal­la­tion, and her prac­tice ex­plores ex­per­i­men­tal doc­u­men­tary and draw­ing pro­cesses for ex­hi­bi­tion, per­for­mance, and ar­chive. She is in­ter­ested in doc­u­men­ta­tion as a con­ver­sa­tional and so­cial tool for record­ing time, peo­ple, and place — of­ten with ref­er­ence to pop­u­lar cul­ture. She is also an ac­tive mem­ber of the Whau of Peo­ple com­mu­nity arts col­lec­tive, sup­porter of the un­der­dog, and proud mother of Harry, Milo, and Manaia.

Lilo has re­cently fea­tured her work Sta­tus Up­date at Te Uru Gallery (2016), The Nor­mandie Re­search Project at Paci­fiques in Nor­mandy, France (2014–’15), and Right of Way, at the Fifth Auck­land Tri­en­nial at Arts­pace (2013).

A suite of Iden­tity-themed ex­hi­bi­tions will be dis­played in Silo 6 dur­ing June’s Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy, and this is where the An­nual Com­mis­sion by Baker+Dou­glas will be pre­sented to Janet Lilo.
