Tracey McKeown is making #TinyHouses, quite a bit smaller than the hipster Californian normal. She has just begun as a student the The Learning Connexion School of Creativity and Art. This exhibition will show some of her early experiments with making tiny houses from a range of found materials. Tracey has a background in casting soaps and crayons, and you can expect to see this coming through as she explores her skills in an art context.... See MoreSee Less
A word from Tim: "From a young age I've been influenced by traditional and contemporary Japanese design aesthetic, thanks to my father's interests. As well as buildings and crafted objects, two texts you probably know have been important guides - In Praise of Shadows and The Beauty of Everyday Things, especially the latter. I also have a beautiful book on traditional timber junctions, and of course the Katsura Villa. I've set myself the challenge of everyday making one artwork that has some craft aspect to it, proof of the hand etc, from when we confirmed the exhibition through to the date (26 days). They won't' be 'Japanesy'. At least I don't think so. I'll select the best for the exhibition, and to suit the location and size of the space." BYO!!... See MoreSee Less
VUW architecture student, Rory Wilson-Cartwright, will show pieces of his thesis that are figured by two intersecting themes: Memory and Cities. The two themes inform a creative practice project that investigate intangible nuances in architecture, characteristics that engage in the elusive fabric of memory, and the physicality of a city, Ōhinehou.
This flash exhibition will display a series of drawings by VUW architecture student, Eleni Timoteo, about boundaries and her understanding of the quality of "va" through her family background in Tokelau.
VIRBES - a flash exhibition by Wayne Churcher "Just how does an artist operate and motivate themselves to make things that never before existed, to create pictures of nothing? I am opening the engine room to my art practice and my 'mini-manifesto'. Though my work has direct links to the rupture in art in the 1950s and 60s, it is firmly embedded in our time through the index of computer programming. I question pictorial concerns by abandoning form to computer code, simple operations and the revealed processes of printmaking. Form is content - my works refer to algorithms and their own making. Oh, and semiotics are involved somewhere." - Wayne Churcher
