GALLERY 1  

11-18 March 2015 | ANASTASIA BOOTH | TOWARDS (dis)SATISFACTION

Towards (dis)Satisfaction playfully interrogates representations of gender and sexuality through specific cultural groups. Employing strategies of subversion, abstraction and appropriation, the exhibition reimagines the objects and material products from certain fetish, bdsm and divergent communities. Reconstructing these visual codes through the formal and theoretical language of sculptural practice. By engaging these hybrid dialogues, the works speak to the problematic, humorous and often paradoxical relationship between feminine depiction and the languages surrounding sexual deviancy.

GALLERY 2  

11-18 March 2015 | KIRSTY LILLICO| THIS USED TO BE THE FUTURE

Using  sculpture and printmaking, Kirsty Lillico addresses the pervasive architecture of Brutalism that swept through institutional New Zealand in the 1960s and 70s. This exhibition compares the benevolent social policies of post-war NZ that Brutalism was embedded in, to the grotesque iniquities of today. Lillico uses cardboard to both highlight the current poverty of means and playfully evoke the raw textures and hermetic spaces of these monumental concrete buildings. An artist’s book will be published as an addendum to the exhibition.
