Maureen Lander: Flat-Pack Whakapapa
Maureen Lander: Flat-Pack Whakapapa

Just as whakapapa (genealogy) reflects someone’s lineage and biology, the starting line of a kete determines how its patterning and size will develop. In Flat-Pack Whakapapa, Maureen Lander has created three installations that explore the connections between whakapapa and raranga (M?ori weaving). Approaching these forms of human connection from a m?tauranga M?ori (M?ori knowledge) perspective, Lander engages with weaving techniques—including whiri (braiding) and whakairo (patterning)—and the concept of aho tuku iho (ancestral lines handed down continuously from generation to generation).

Kelly McDonald: Portrait of Jewellery
Kelly McDonald: Portrait of Jewellery

Portrait of Jewellery springs forward from an exploration into the ever-changing definition of contemporary jewellery. Here, the specific arrangement of objects and the spaces around them forms a visual language, speaking to the connections between people and things. Within the installation each unique object builds upon both traditional associations and personal narratives to investigate the potential divide between a tool and an item of jewellery, and spurs a conversation around use, value and meaning.

Kelston Boys High School: Inside/Out
Kelston Boys High School: Inside/Out

Inside/Out is a Kelston Boys High School exhibition created by year 11 sculpture students. They were challenged to investigate and redefine everyday items by exploring positive and negative space through casting techniques. Inspired by the work of Rachel Whiteread and her minimalist approach, the objects are able to evoke contemplation by giving the inside of things a life which would otherwise go unseen.

YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES PRESENTS
YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES PRESENTS

YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES is a Seoul-based art group consisting of Young-hae Chang, a Korean, and Marc Voge, an American. The duo, who initially formed in 1999, were among the first to use the internet as a platform for artistic experimentation. Using the deceptively simple form of text animations, usually set to music, YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES’ work explores the possibilities of media, technology and power in an increasingly connected world of virtual relationships, intensified by the politics of globalisation and migration.
