The Company of Giants theatre group are now playing their amazing show“Rangitahua, The stopping off place” at the Kermadec exhibition in Wellington. Weaving their way around the artworks and audience, they tell the wild story of the Kermadec Islands.
The show plays at 2pm and 7pm until Tuesday at the Academy Galleries, Queens Wharf, Wellington. Book at iticket.co.nz.
In celebration of the government’s announced intention to create the Kermadec Marine Sanctuary (only the 4th biggest in the world!) the Kermadec artists have put together a ‘final’ exhibition here in Wellington.
Hosted by Pataka, the show is on at the Academy Gallery on Queens Wharf from today
All the original artists (Phil Dadson, Bruce Foster, Fiona Hall, Gregory O’Brien, John Pule, John Reynolds. Elizabeth Thomson, Robin White and me of course) are represented, most with new works. I have new photographic works and a video instillation.
I would also highly recommend coming to one of the shows put on the the theatre group Company of Giants, who will be performing Rangitahua from the 15th until the 19th (2pm and 7pm). Book at iticket.co.nz. It is a great show that weaves it’s way among the audience and exhibition telling the story of the Kermadecs.
I just received this great photo of the Kermadec Exhibition at the Tjibaou Centre in New Caledonia. In May last year a group performed a contemporary dance in response to the works including my video installation “Surface Tension” .
The latest iteration of the Kermadec exhibition has just opened in the Renzo Piano designed Tjibaou centre in Nouméa, New Caledonia.
It features a selection of works from the exhibition that went to the MAC (Museum of Contemporary Art) in Santiago Chile last year plus a handful of new works including a new large video installation by me (you can just see it at the top of the steps)
Here are a few snaps from Bronwen Golder:
