Deborah Rundle is an artist living and working in Tāmaki Makaurau. Principally utilising text, she investigates the ways in which power plays out in the social and political domain in order to muse on possibilities for change. Artworks frequently call up the past, engaging in both a critique of the present, and a lament for the failure of a future once promised. Recent exhibitions include: Are We Not Ready? Te Tuhi, 2018/19, Auckland; Hybrid Spring, Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington, 2018; March Mostra, BSR Gallery, Rome, Italy, 2018; The Tomorrow People, Adam Art Gallery Te Pātaka Toi, Wellington, 2017; DOWN TIME, Play_station Gallery, Wellington, 2017.
In 2018 Deborah travelled to Rome as the inaugural holder of the British School at Rome / Wallace Arts Trust Residency. Also in 2018, she won the Molly Morpeth Canaday 3D award with Employee of the Month.
Deborah is also a member of the art collective Public Share.
