  • Suicide Pavilions

    Esling, S; Chon, C (2013-12-05)

    Creative work

    Artworks ‘Suicide Pavilions’ is a collaborative exhibition of new work between Auckland-based artists Simon Esling and Clara Chon comprising works on paper, a photograph, printed suicide notes and objects. The suicide pavilions themselves are delicate watercolour, ink, and pencil works on paper depicting contemplative spaces for those who harbour the thought of suicide. Central to these pieces is the idea spoken by the protagonist, Harry, in Herman Hesse’s 'Steppenwolf', ‘that to call suicides only those who actually destroy themselves is false’. Instead, it is the tension within the deliberation of suicide - the avoidance of suicide while holding the thought of it - that Esling and Chon have chosen to explore. The architectural atmosphere of Esling’s imagined illustrations plays on the contrasting aspects of the interior and exterior, and their accompanying structural connotations: lightness, darkness - the flow from one place to another (from one state of mind to the next), as well as their ability to elicit a general ambience or mood. In the drawings and suicide notes (which are both real and imagined) Esling captures those fleeting moments of relief, and inevitably, of falling shadow. The selected sculptural objects suggest something more visceral - they become the tangible points for the physical expression of the psychological friction of the suicide. With its requisite holes and straps, Chon’s crafted leather harness speaks to both the freedom and restraint inherent in the mind of the suicide, where a simultaneous desire exists to be freed from one world, yet remain in it. - Jamie Hanton, Director

  • Eyetrackers

    Minissale, Gregory; Lambert, Anthony

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Eyetrackers is a unique fusion of ideas drawn from art and neuroscience. This exhibition is the result of an ongoing conversation between art historian Greg Minissale and cognitive neuroscientist Tony Lambert, in which they have discovered surprising common ground between the visual arts and the visual sciences. In particular, Eyetrackers explores a question that continues to puzzle, fascinate and inspire both artists and scientists alike: How do we see?
