See what I can see: Discovering New Zealand Photography
Sargent Gallery, Whanganui. 18 June – 11 September
My Kermedec work Seachange (approaching Raoul) is part of a new exhibition alongside work from some of New Zealand’s leading photographers including Robin White, Bruce Foster and fellow Massey-ites, Anne Noble and Wayne Barrar.
This exhibition is a celebration of that remarkable, well-travelled invention, the camera, the New Zealand that it captured and the artists who wielded it. This exhibition is a companion to the 2015 book See what I can see: New Zealand Photography for the young and curious written by Gregory O’Brien and published by Auckland University Press. The exhibition, co-curated by O’Brien and Sarjeant Gallery curator Greg Donson brings together a selection of images from the book alongside examples from the Sarjeant Gallery’s rich photographic holdings.
Kermadec – Lines in the Ocean has opened in Whanganui’s Sargent Gallery. It was a great opening and floor talk – well attended (yes more people than in the photos) with a nice relaxed conversational feel. As always the staff at the Sargent rocked. On ya Whanganui!
