Installed at the heart of The ** Factor 3.0 is Stella Brennan’s significant new body of work, Thread Between Darkness and Light, included in her 2023 survey exhibition Ancestor Technologies at City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi. Taking as its starting point a family archive of 120-year-old glass-plate photographic negatives, “the installation considers the ways we navigate the span of time and distance. Cracked, tarnished, and peeling in places, the negatives are marked by the traces of time’s passage. In scanning and printing these images – and the detritus of their surface damage – onto large-scale silk banners, Brennan shifts the materiality of these archival fragments, translating them into a physically navigable space.” [City Gallery Wellington].
