Beyond the Index, curated by Allan McDonald
Gallery One, Unitec, 2020

Maurer documents the eponymous location during lockdown, offering eerie vistas of nearly deserted midday streets alongside slow panning shots of the interior of an apartment, the camera neatly circumscribing the confines of a locked-down existence. In addition to its value as a document of an unprecedented moment in Aotearoa’s history, this work also functions as a psychological study of the alienating, dissociative effects of lockdown and a dreamlike meditation on a posthuman environment.

Maurer's photographs in Endeavour are carefully-composed: distanced, empirical, questioning; and there's also an unease, an anxiety, evident beneath his calm surfaces as he explores landscape legacies of industrialism, globalisation and the free market.
