Out of Place

4 August – 26 August 2012

Katharina Jaeger, Chris Pole, Tim J. Veling and Charlotte Watson start with structure and consider what is possible when the normal rules no longer apply.

Tilting a panoramic view until it dissolves, constructing furnishings with which to tackle the new normal, turning a room inside out and revealing a city that is reinventing itself before our eyes – four artists start with structure and examine what is possible when the rules no longer apply. Featuring works by Katharina Jaeger, Chris Pole, Tim J. Veling and Charlotte Watson.

Out of Place is the fourth instalment of the Rolling Maul project series, which has been generously supported by Creative New Zealand. Local artists have been hit hard by the recent earthquakes, losing studios, works and exhibition venues. Acknowledging this, Rolling Maul borrows its title from a classic rugby union manoeuvre and hopes to be similarly effective in gaining ground against tough opposition. A key part of the Gallery's Outer Spaces programme, Rolling Maul begins with a series of month-long exhibitions at our new favourite venue, the spruced-up gallery space above NG at 212 Madras Street.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.

NG is at 212 Madras Street, Christchurch. Please note the exhibition space is upstairs with no lift access.

Group Tours of the exhibition are available
Book a free tour for your group of friends, work, school or community group. Please contact us to arrange a date and time and we'll have one of our volunteer guides meet you in the exhibition space to take you for an informative floortalk. Tours last 30-45 minutes; bookings essential.
