“Aotearoa New Zealand artist Dane Mitchell is known for creating presences on the edge of perception and cognition—conceptual yet sensual experiences that disrupt assumptions and challenge logic. Post hoc is an ambitious new project that extends Mitchell’s practice of material and immaterial enquiry by working with minimal industrial forms and alternative knowledges in ways that produce uncertainty.”—Zara Stanhope

Published on the occasion of the 58th Venice Biennale and edited by Zara Stanhope and Chris Sharp, Post hoc looks for alternate realities outside “rational” explanations of human experience, through the work of Dane Mitchell. Mitchell’s speculative, conceptual practice has a poetic and playful edge in its exploration of relations between living and non-living things and philosophical concepts. His employment of misunderstanding or unconventional scientific forms productively challenges assumptions. While privileging a poetic subjectivity that creates space for doubt, Post hoc is affectively and politically charged: it requires viewers to actively engage and determine their relationship to insistent and profuse loss, and to promise of its continuity.
