Tim Wigmore—Treasure Boxes
The sound of ruru calling welcomes us into the Deane Gallery and Tim Wigmore’s new exhibition Precious Cargo. Inside the warmly lit space are six waka-huia, wooden chests made to store and safeguard precious objects. Most sit atop metal stands, one hangs suspended from the ceiling by thick ropes, “You can open it,” Tim encourages.
Len Lye || Quotable Quotes
For the duration of the exhibition Len Lye: Kaleidoscope we will be posting a mixture of both Lye’s own thoughts about, love, art, music, happiness and much more besides, and the musings of those who knew Lye and were profoundly influenced by him.
Why? Because everyone loves a good quote and we think it is time for individual happiness now!
