  • Leo Bensemann: A Fantastic Art Venture

    Simpson, Peter; Waite, N

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    This exhibition, eight years in the planning, had the misfortune to open one week before the 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquake; the exhibition was immediately taken down and never went up again – the Christchurch Art Gallery has still not reopened. Although in my book Fantastica: The World of Leo Bensemann (NRO1) I covered the whole of Bensemann’s career, in the exhibition I took responsibility for the paintings (portraits and landscapes) , while Dr. Noel Waite (University of Otago) looked after Bensemann’s graphic work, book design and printing. This was the most extensive exhibition of Bensemann’s work ever mounted and together with Fantastica will compel a major reassessment of his place in New Zealand culture. Art New Zealand wrote of it: ‘The exhibition (including more than 100 items) is significant in bringing together what has in the past appeared disparate and unrelated; here Bensemann's entire oeuvre - the output of a painter, illustrator, calligrapher, typographer, designer and publisher is given equal billing. Although this exhibition is an important re-assessment and valuable for a new generation unfamiliar with his work, a national touring show would have precipitated an even greater awareness’.

  • New works on paper (solo exhibition)

    Cherrie, Derrick

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    The six works featured in this exhibition were selected from over 20 works, completed late in 2008 and throughout 2009. This exhibition represents the outcome of the first stage of body of creative work through which I intend to investigate the dialectic gap between brute materiality and constructed meaning. That is, (1) how artists manipulate the ‘dumb’ materials of their medium (paint, wood, stone etc.) to produce meaningful forms; and (2) how the resulting meaning goes beyond (transcends) the materials to become the aesthetic basis of a shared culture. This exhibition was the first of a series of exhibitions through which these themes will be explored. This project, in both its expressive methodologies and theoretical underpinnings draws on the exploration of the dialectic of material and meaning initially explored in 1960’s & 70’s in the work of second generation New York School abstract expressionists and neo-dadaist painters such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Similar themes of relevance to this project are beginning to be explored through a poststructuralist semiotic frame of reference by contemporary artists such as Josh Smith, Isa Genzken, & Jutta Koether.

  • Crossing Lines

    Lee, Pei-Jung

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    The aim of research is to explore Chinese women's role from the ancient time till now. Traditionally Chinese women were restrained by many boundaries. There were no sense of "self" in their world. They were taught to depend on their fathers when they were young, devoted to their husbands when they got married and took great care of their children when they became mothers. Their behaviors were strictly demanded by the society: walk without turning, talk without moving lips, sit without moving knees, stand without moving skirts, feel joy without laughing out loud and angry without raising voice. How are those boundaries influencing the Chinese women now?

This was the aftermath of the killing of the missionary Rev Carl Sylvius Volkner on the 2 March 1865.

Te Whakatōhea ingeniously wove around the palisade walls tī kouka (Cordyline australis) or cabbage tree. When the canon ball hit the palisades the tī kouka absorbed the force of the canon ball and rebounded the ball. 20 Te Whakatohea were killed and a number of others were wounded.
