  • Assemblages

    Mackel, D; Gregory, Nuala

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Mackel, D., collaborator Over the past three years both artists have worked collaboratively in an installation format under the broad theme of landscapes of the past. For this exhibition, Deirdre Mackel has produced an installation entitled ???Accidental Gardens 2???. It consists of a child-like garden made from an enclosure of miniature barbed wire fences, and toy gardening tools, including elements of Nuala Gregory???s flower works and small sculptures or ???shelves???, assembled together allowing for the combination and interplay of ideas and materials derived from two locations. Deirdre references her remembered landscapes of growing up in West Belfast throughout the conflict and Nuala responds with objects representing those commonly found in the earth - old bottles delicately embellished with buttercups and daisies, combining them with lemon wood blocks to reference her current landscape of New Zealand. This assemblage of objects, symbolises the way things are thrown together in chaotic metropolitan space, forming accidental relations among which new possibilities might yet be glimpsed.

  • Restless Idiom: A mini-survey of Cousins recent work. Made between 2009-2015.

    Cousins, James

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Cousins, J., artist, Gordon-Smith, I., curator James Cousins??? practice pivots around questions of how a painting might function: how do we understand the status of an image? What systems guide our understanding? What processes could be used to disrupt these assumptions? Restless Idiom is a mini-survey of Cousins recent work. Made between 2009-2015, the exhibited works combine what might otherwise be perceived as contradictory painting concerns: the figurative and the abstract: the illusory and the material. These oppositional qualities are unified to create an optical instability, prompting the eye to constantly move between the representations of familiar flora and fauna images as perceived from afar, and the abstractions of colour and geometry when viewed up close. The result calls into question the certainty of representational conventions. By placing the image into an equilibrial tension with the material effects of particular processes, Cousins creates a fresh encounter with what painting might be and provokes a heightened consciousness of the very act of looking.

  • On First Looking Into Chapman's Homer (solo exhibition)

    Parekowhai, Michael

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    The sculptural installation was exhibited at the 54th Venice Biennale in the Palazzo Loredan dell'Ambasciatore on the Grand Canal. The exhibition title is based on the poem "On First Looking into Chapman???s Homer" by the nineteenth-century English Romantic poet John Keats. In this, Keats describes a Spanish adventurer climbing to the top of a hill in what is now Panama and looking out over the Pacific to survey its potential riches for the first time. The works included one intricately-carved red Steinway concert grand piano and two concert grands fabricated in bronze supporting two cast bronze bulls. On one piano a full-size bull rested on the closed lid with its massive body suggesting the folding forms of landscape. On the other piano the bull stood firm, offering an eye-to-eye challenge for anyone prepared to take a seat at the keyboard. The installation also featured a figure from the Kapa Haka series (Officer Taumaha), two small bronze olive tree saplings (Constitution Hill), and one pair of child-sized bronze crocs. The titles of the works that make up the installation are: He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: story of a New Zealand river (the carved piano), A Peak in Darien (the resting bull and piano), and Chapman???s Homer (the standing bull and piano). He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu Story of a New Zealand River was played throughout the exhibition with a programme of performances by New Zealand and Italian pianists.

  • Rapture

    ET AL

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    In 1931, Alice May Williams of Auckland, New Zealand began writing a series of letters to Dr Edison Pettit and Dr Seth Nicholson, astronomers at the Mt Wilson Observatory in Pasadena, California. The five surviving notes outline her knowledge of skymachines, bodies linked to souls by wireless, and give instructions for the building of devices in which people might travel between planets. They also contain glimpses of Alice???s daily life in Mt Eden, Karangahape Road and Ponsonby, where newspaper advertisements seemed to speak directly to her, post office clerks snubbed her, and landladies mocked her to her face. In these fraught circumstances, Alice May Williams began her correspondence with a pair of famous scientists who she regarded as her equals in the exploration of space: ???If I die my knowledge may die with me, & no one may ever have the same knowledge again.???

    Integration of computing, multi-media and internet methods and techniques into contemporary art practice, will continue to be a focus in the current project. Using interactive and multi-media techniques in art disciplines effectively involves understanding and experimenting with the integration and interfacing of, computer generated material into the installation. The computer can act as a technical programmable interface either in the local scene of audio/visual disjunction or across a computer-based net installation to allow interaction that is not necessarily tied to specifics of time or place. Disjunction of object and reader happens across not only layered meanings and intentions but across disparate media and dislocated net-based media, further challenging the viewer/object-site interchange. Voices or positions are placed in opposition through the programming of voice and sound tracks. During the course of their programmed discussion, an enormous diversity of subjects is forced into a communal relationship through sound. These sound-subjects are utterances ??? voices with ideas, voices with beliefs, voices with conviction and meaning. Amplified in the exhibition space, they are in a state of literal disharmony, interfering and overlapping, out of sync and disagreeable. In addition, their words are foreign to each other; not just in geography, culture or religion, but also in subjects as diverse as art, science, philosophy, religion and cult activity. In their forced cohabitation, individual positions and meanings are somehow cancelled out as sound and idea compete for attention. Other specific areas addressed in this project will include ??? Newspapers, periodicals and tabloids as forms of mass dissemination. ??? Installation as identity ??? installation, publication and the archiving of societal events. ??? Aleatoric scripting ??? random sonic phenomena using statistical procedures

  • While The Sun Shines (2016) [23-channel SoundDome version]

    Coulter, John (2016-12-01)

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    Programme Note: It took me until my mid-forties to recognise the wisdom contained in the farming-related ethics I grew up with. I now fully appreciate what my father was trying to pass on in exposing his family to a life in the country. There is a richness of wellbeing that is all-but unattainable in the melee of urban sprawl, and he, having spent his own childhood holidays on a farm in Milburn Otago New Zealand, intimately knew the value of this experience. This piece, which has taken several years to complete, is a gift for my wonderful parents Brian and Clare Coulter, who in 2016 celebrate their 75th, and 70th birthdays (respectively), as well as their 50th (Golden) wedding anniversary. Explanation of Title: The saying ???make hay while the sun shines??? expresses an attitude that can be literally translated as: 'if you have an opportunity to do something, do it before the opportunity expires'. This code reflects a small part of the lifetime of learning and discovery that comes from living and working in a farming community.

  • Paintings of the Sun

    Ingram, SA

    Creative work
    The University of Auckland Library

    For over a year Simon Ingram???s Radio Painting Station has been collecting energy emitted from hydrogen atoms undergoing ???spin-flips??? in space. The visual representation of this collection is a series of thirty concentrically circular compositions that materialise energy from the sun, and the interstellar medium, in a cartoon-like and painterly way. It is these that the artist chooses to present for his fourth solo exhibition Paintings of the Sun at Gow Langsford Gallery. Radio Painting Station, set up at JAR in Kingsland, is one part amateur radio astronomer's lab, one part painting studio and one part gallery space. The entrance to the space is mostly glass and at street level, with passers-by able to see the progress of the project as a series of paintings multiplies. Local people see the project as their own - parents with children in prams, bar flies en route home late at night from Kingsland bars, dog walkers; all stop to talk with the artist about what is happening in the space. The artist uses techniques and equipment of a painter turned amateur radio astronomer. Rather than looking for visible light with a telescope, he constructed a pyramid-like form and pointed it through a skylight to collect energy at the frequency of 1420 megahertz, then couples this to a special radio receiver and this to his machine. Radio Painting Station???s operation encompasses the period from the 4th of November 2013 to the 28th of April 2015. It was commissioned by Wystan Curnow and Susan Davis for JAR and supported generously by the Chartwell Trust. As well as temporarily turning JAR into an amateur radio astronomer???s painting studio, the artist installed a solar power system, electrifying it, as an off-the-grid project space.
