Killing Time

Killing Time (2008) by Bridget Smith documents the private, yet extraordinary world of a possum hunter living in the Urewera National Park. Revealing a world of personal fulfilment and obsession, the artist pushes the boundaries of her well known photographic interiors, often devoid of human presence. Her memoirs of the daily rituals of her subject provide a personal insight into a space, or time otherwise left un-revealed.

British artist Bridget Smith was the Artist in Residence at Two Rooms in December 2006. This film and a series of photographs are the result of this residency and her journey to the East Coast.

Smith’s explorations into London Clubs and Associations are well illustrated in her book Society, released in the United Kingdom in 2007.
