ZL10H (Zula, Lemar 1 Oscar Hotel) is a project by Karl Bayly that explores construction material components from the popular modernist era, through soft, poetic gestures. It responds to the history and environment of the Mezzanine Space; positioning its dysfunctional access points both as metaphor and object. A text is also included, written by Peter Allan Fairhead, at Bayly’s invitation. Peter is the son of architect Allan Fairhead whose firm designed the Newton Post Office in 1973, in which the project takes place.

Karl Bayly holds a Bachelor of Media Arts from Waikato Institute of Technology. He is currently based in Hamilton, where he recently founded the artist run space PILOT. Recent shows include Rise/Fall: Comfortable rhythms (2014), Pilot, Hamilton; We’d make it, if we held hands (2013), pop up space, Hamilton – which Bayly also curated; and Thirty-Four Hundred (2012), Snake pit, Auckland.
