For turbulence: the 3rd Auckland Triennial, Artspace is pleased to present a major new body of work by Auckland based artist Sriwhana Spong that hauntingly captures the viewer in a moving image installation of other worldliness and time-lapsed sculptural offerings. Spong forms a space where memories, impressions and ideas collide to create work that both teases out what is subconsciously familiar and tests our cultural memory.
Greek artist Alexandros Georgiou has travelled from India's holy city of Varanasi to Auckland entirely by public transport. Along the way, he has created work responding to his environment and posted them to Artspace where they will be exhibited.
The Long March Project is a complex and multifaceted art and social project based in China, who collaborates with New Zealand artists Daniel Malone and Kah Bee Chow in No Chinatown. The project takes a public minded approach by utilising public spaces not just as exhibitions sites, but also involving the contributions of many other individuals, communities and collectives as a vital part of the work. No Chinatown explores and engages with the idea of Auckland and its Chinatown(s).
The 3rd Auckland Triennial is presented by the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki in partnership with Artspace, the Gus Fisher Gallery, ST PAUL ST and Academy Cinemas.
