Everything By: Daniel Satele


Answered only by Fibonacci Sequence, Daniel Michael Satele speaks to NZ artist Dan Munn on two trips through the Sápmi region - one by drone, one by a stylised postcard of bears and tents - that come together in his recent video work.


Auckland based-artist Xin Cheng uses the hardiness and handiness of found materials to tease out a kind of playful 'living in the ruins' - thrifty and unpackaged solutions in an overprocessed world. Daniel Satele talks to her about growing up on Enid Blyton and showing work for the first time.


Daniel Satele profiles Auckland curator Ema Tavola, a woman who has helped shape the landscape of contemporary Pacific art in New Zealand.


Dozens of images of Justin Bieber - on tour, asleep, at play - and a whole lot more of things both famous and banal alike. We take a trip inside Auckland-based Eli Orzessek's weird, wonderful micro-world of celebrity tribute.


Daniel Satele profiles California-based Dan Taulapapa McMullin, a relentlessly fluid practitioner whose plays, collages and installation offer a very 21st century account of what it means to be 'home'


We welcome our new art columnist, Daniel Satele to the Pantograph Punch. This month, he talks to University of Auckland MFA grad Clara Chon about installations fit for retail (or vice versa), art she likes and hates, and childhood.
