Canterbury Tales (2013)
Stuart Lloyd-Harris is a visual artist based in Christchurch, New Zealand. His practice spans lighting and set design, sculpture, photography and filmmaking. In 1998 Stuart gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University. His experience working with film and photographic lighting allowed him to expand into theatrical lighting design where he worked with artists like Amy Winehouse and Sinead O’Conor. This practice led Stuart into more sculptural work creating objects from steel with solo exhibitions and a collaboration with Chris Reddington on the permanent earthquake memorial ‘Song Song’, a walk-in musical instrument, situated at the entrance to Ara Institute. Alongside his own work Stuart collaborates with a variety of Christchurch artists and companies including the Court Theatre on Astroman (2018) and Julia Harvie on Hive (2019) and has worked as a designer and collaborator for Free Theatre and Te Puna Toi on projects since 2013 including Canterbury Tales (2013), Kafka's Amerika (2014), Footprints/Tapuwae (2015), The Mauricio Kagel Project (2015), Frankenstein (2016), The Black Rider (2017), Alice (2018), Ars Acustica (2019), Erewhon Project (2010) and the company's many Ubu Nights.
