Chris Corson-Scott

Chris Corson-Scott (born 1985) lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand. Son of the painter Ian Scott (1945–2013), he grew up in a household where art was made, seen and discussed. He attended music school rather than art school, but he has a deep knowledge of art history and has immersed himself in the theory and practice of photography. He has brought his photographs together in publications – Dreaming in the Anthropocene (Compound Press, Auckland, 2017) and Evanescent Monuments (Compound Press, Auckland, 2018) – and in solo exhibitions at Trish Clark Gallery in Auckland; Parlour Projects, Napier, and Photospace in Wellington. His photographs have been included in group exhibitions including Kinder’s Presence (Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, 2013); My Place (Four New Zealand Photographers) (Pingyao International Photography Festival, Shanxi, China, 2013); The Devil’s Blind Spot: Recent Strategies in New Zealand Art Photography (Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, 2016); The Future Machine (Tauranga Art Gallery, 2017) and Civilization: Photography Now (Auckland Art Gallery, 2020). His works are in private and public collections including the Chartwell Collection at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū. He is represented by Trish Clark Gallery, Auckland.
