names held in our mouths
names held in our mouths

Cultural knowledge, within Māori and Moana communities, is often passed on through familial lines, both orally or embodied in particular practices and ceremonies. As with any knowledges, these practices are always in flux, responsive to shifting conditions. Colonisation, capitalism and migration have had a particular impact on how practices are continued. Some fall out of use; others adapt to new materials; still others continue on, fuelled by social functions and significance.

Marie Shannon: Rooms found only in the home

The exhibition explores the intersecting spheres of her practice; considering her different conceptual interests and dual focus on photography and video.

Small Space: Jane Dodd
Small Space: Jane Dodd

In recent years Jane Dodd’s jewellery practice has pivoted around the portrayal of animals.  With a subtext of human impact and interaction she has explored issues of extinction and infestation, cruelty and conflict. The Family is an exhibition of new works that asserts the place of the human species within the animal world; where character and narrative are given to humans, pre-human hominids and other fellow simians alike. Within this nutty world of Jane Dodd jewellery license is taken, comedy is king and story-telling trumps fact.

twenty-four-seven
twenty-four-seven

twenty-four-seven considers the relationship between labour, time and round-the-clock networks. Three artists approach non-stop time from various angles, from the state between sleep and wakefulness that emerges from working pressures to our own willingness to stay logged in online through to the clock itself as an enforcer of standardised time.

Natasha Matila-Smith, Raqs Media Collective, Ane Hjort Guttu and Daisuke Kosugi. Curated by Ioana Gordon-Smith

Small Space: Rowan Panther

Rowan Panther creates fine lace textiles using muka fibres that examine the divide between art and craft.
