Speaking sticks and moving targets
New works by Shane Cotton
The Hanging Sky brings together Shane Cotton's skyscapes from the past five years. But the core of the exhibition is a big group of freshly made works of art. Senior curator Justin Paton first saw them in completed form during the show's installation in Brisbane. Here he describes his encounters with a body of work 'at once beautiful, aggressive, protective and evasive.'
Wellington-based artist Sian Torrington is currently working with the Gallery on a site-specific sculptural installation for Christchurch. She talks with curator Felicity Milburn about that project, her process, and about the residency she recently undertook in Samoa.
