Paint over, use again: is a screening and conversation about recent collaborations between Jess Charlton and Raewyn Martyn, with writer and archivist Stefanie Lash.

Their work together investigates connections between histories of bio-based plastics, colonisation, ecologies, and personal narratives that activate understanding of plasticity through time. Films included in this screening show bio-based plastics moving between material states; a music video that improvises a narrative from curious encounters; and work-in-progress toward a new series called Playing the Machine, where industrial plastics extruders are playfully ‘misused’.

Jess Charlton is a filmmaker and artist who is currently a teaching fellow in film at Victoria University of Wellington. Raewyn Martyn is an artist and teacher who is about to complete a practice-based PhD at Massey University. Stefanie Lash is a poet and an archivist at Archives New Zealand Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga.
