Zac Langdon-Pole is a New Zealand artist based between Berlin and Tāmaki Makaurau. His photographic and sculptural work of found and fabricated artefacts traverses a range of scales from the familial to the celestial, all connected by the artist’s interest in memory, translation, and the ordering of social and natural worlds. After gaining a BFA (Hons) from Elam School of Fine Arts, at the University of Auckland, in 2010, Langdon-Pole received a Meisterschüler from Frankfurt’s Städelschule, in 2015.
In 2017 he was the recipient of the Ars Viva Prize and in 2018 he was selected as the seventh recipient of the BMW Art Journey. A survey of his practice, Containing Multitudes, was exhibited at City Gallery Wellington, Te Whare Toi, in 2020. Forthcoming projects include Splendide Mendax, (with Daniel Boyd) at STATION Gallery Melbourne, and between February and May 2022, Zac will be the McCahon House Artist in Residence at Parehuia.
