Watching Windows

In this exhibition, presented amidst the elevated skyscapes of Titirangi and developed in collaboration between artist André Hemer and curator Andrew Clifford, an international network of artists negotiate the physical and digital interplay of light and space as a way to communicate ideas of place – locally, globally and imagined.

Yukihiro Taguchi: Pokepoke

Yukihiro Taguchi: Pokepoke

Using everyday materials found in his immediate vicinity, Yukihiro Taguchi creates fleeting formations that are animated through stop-motion techniques. In a constant flux of things becoming and disassembling, he revels in the potential for reinvention, performance and play embedded in any place, and the delight that can come from a familiar or found object acting in an entirely unexpected way.

Where my eye leads

Jacqueline Fahey: Where my eye leads

Jacqueline Fahey is one of Aotearoa’s foremost artists. Though best-known for her iconic paintings made in the 1970s, Fahey has consistently been attentive to the everyday world both around and within her home, from scenes observed along Karangahape Road and Williamson Avenue to the ebbs of family life.

The Fairy Falls

Cushla Donaldson: The Fairy Falls

The Fairy Falls, a solo exhibition by Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist Cushla Donaldson, negotiates the world of finance we inhabit in which the Markets have an omnipotent presence. In the world of finance, objects are counted according to an abstract quantification which registers price differentials and looks for ways in which the differences between objects are tradable with a view to seizing value.

The Exquisite Wound

The Exquisite Wound

The Exquisite Wound is an interdisciplinary installation by visual artist Rebecca Swan in collaboration with composer Charlie Ha, engineer Peter Swan, light artist Peter Stoneham, and scientist David Shillington. The works contemplate how we relate to the disappearance of our physical bodies, which begs the question, “what are we without them?”

Where my eye leads

Jeremy Leatinu’u: The Welcome Project 

 For English speakers, Jeremy Laetinu'u's welcome statement is a dichotomous expression, an invitation that states an inclusivity while at the same time what ‘they’ or ‘we’ are being welcomed into will forever remain exclusive and nondescript. Denying us an entrant passage as this place is never defined, so subsequently we can never enter.

HEAT: Solar Revolutions

HEAT: Solar Revolutions

We are now in an era of HEAT: the Earth is quite literally heating up, with new global temperature records set every month and year, but there is also a warming of interest in more climate-friendly ways to live. HEAT: Solar Revolutions is an art event that asks how the sun’s energy may
 catalyse climate-friendly conversations, collective actions, speculations and interventions.
