works by claire duncan
Claire Duncan is an interdisciplinary artist from from Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand.
Her sound designs, music, videos and writing bleed across territories of alternative music, theatre and art. Her work often explores the textural and semantic possibilities of collaging found/foraged and recycled sounds.
Recent design collaborations include Biljana Popovich's
Synthetic Baby (
2018), Physics Room;
a hook but no fish
(2018), Pump House Gallery / Govett Brewster Gallery; Madhan/Croft/Frankovich's
(2018), Zanetti Productions; and countless collaborations with PICTVRE (Veronica Crockford-Pound).
Her ongoing recorded and performance work as
i.e. crazy (Non Compos Mentis;
Muzai Records, 2017) explores the boundaries of civilised behaviour/sanity through similar exploratory modes of aural collage, and her participation in art-group
explores the potentialities for surprise and reinvention in performance contexts.
In 2015, Duncan wrote and directed the film documentary ode to musical self-expression
Land of the Long White Stain.
Her writing has appeared in
