Sarah Dugan’s Badlander gathers together and plays on the filmic tropes of the so-called gothic sensibility in film, art and literature – the underbelly that belies the evidence of the ordinary. Her vast landscapes and dramatically lit interiors, inhabited by individuals apparently going quietly about their lives, beg comparison with the film-making of David Lynch and Quentin Tarrantino. – Chris Saines CNZM
