Tuesday 12th-17th August 2014
A KuGo Collective exhibition
Where the usual epic adventure follows the journey of the classical arcade hero on an epic quest, this body of work represents a crusade where bravery is substituted with social anxiety, and success is a fantasy reserved only for the greatest of champions. Press Start? takes the virtual wonder-world of video games from the perspective of the ‘un-hero’.
This exhibition is the premier showcase of works by emerging Wellington-based artist Francis Gordon and is the flagship creative project by KuGo Collective, a creative collaboration partnership that Gordon founded in 2014 with producer/curator Te Arikirangi Mamaku.
Presented in partnership with Matchbox Studios Press Start? is made possible with the support and generosity of Tohu Wines, BigMark Photography, Phantom Billstickers, and RadioActive.
