Lara Strongman: This show brings together thirty years or more of your work, put together with the curators from Dunedin Public Art Gallery. I wondered what you’d discovered through the process?
Marie Shannon: I discovered that I hadn’t moved very far. That’s not to say that I didn’t feel my work had developed, but I’d just run around in such confined territory. Of course that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I found it confronting to look at that short reach in my output. I had to convince myself that it didn’t all look like shit. (You probably can’t say that here because you want people to come and see the exhibition, but I’m being perfectly honest.) Each time the show was hung, I’d walk away feeling despondent and then I’d sort of think, “No, it’s actually okay”.Continued
Don't you love it when your two favourite things come together?

I laughed at your note. Our packing was not done until the last minute of the 11th hour, and when we at last got onto the train we could only think how lovely it was to do nothing and think about nothing. However, by now we realise we are really going to England. After 17 days at sea, out of sight of land, N.Z. seems as if it was in another universe.
Te Puna o Waiwhetū Christchurch Art Gallery is launching its exclusive new art-wine and an art-beer at Art Do – the new gallery gala.
I think art in Christchurch brings people together. It’s a talking point and a cultural experience as well. I am excited about the events Chapman Tripp is associated with – it’s great be great to be involved.
Come hungry and do dinner – a collection of contemporary food stations cooked up by some of the best and brightest in the business will feed you at Art Do.
Listen up all you budding directors and auteurs! As part of ReMix on 18 July, we’re running a short film competition for young filmmakers aged between 13 and 18.
Joanna Braithwaite’s works often address the ambiguous relationship between animals and humans, particularly where animals are victims of exploitation. Here, she gives to a human the most obvious ability of birds - that of flight. But it is unclear which species is in control, suggesting an alteration in the usual balance of power. In 1999 Braithwaite moved to Sydney. Living near the airport, she became interested in the idea of flight - both physical and metaphorical. Many of her subsequent works focused on birds and winged insects and on flying, floating, levitating or, as here, ascending. Braithwaite was born in England but came to New Zealand in 1965. The family lived on a farm in South Canterbury. Braithwaite graduated from the University of Canterbury in 1985, after having received the Ethel Rose Overton Scholarship and the Sawtell Turner Painting Prize in 1983. Since 1984 she has exhibited widely both in New Zealand and Australia. Braithwaite lectured in painting at the University of Canterbury in 1998. She currently lives in Sydney.
