Ōtautahi Kōrerotia kaiwhakahaere have made new work for a collaborative exhibition as part of First Thursdays: Dreamscapes.
Taking instructions from the metaphysical, embodied physically, Caitlin Clarke and Māia Abraham follow myth, spirit and dreams to produce sculptural installations of video and drawing work. Māia's work choreographs the myth of a South Island taniwha, and marks that choreography in charcoal. Caitlin's work stems from a dream and is realised through performative action and displayed on film in the space. With the curatorial collaboration of Hamish Petersen, the project intends to bring visitors into the histories, mythologies, dreamworlds and imaginations of the artists and those who came before us, whose stories we share.
This project is generously hosted and supported by Cycle Trading Company, 23 Elgin St.
Exhibition opens from 3pm.
