Scott Flanagan: Do You Remember Me Like I Do?

1 September – 23 September 2012

Including a wishing well and mirror painstakingly woven from reflective black VHS tape, Scott Flanagan's latest installation considers the surprisingly elusive nature of civic memory.

Scott Flanagan's works are conceptual in origin, but they are often created with a methodical and labour-intensive approach. His latest installation, which is part of the Gallery's Rolling Maul series of new art from Christchurch, includes a wishing well and mirror painstakingly woven from reflective black VHS tape and considers the surprisingly elusive nature of civic memory.

 

Do You Remember Me Like I Do? is the latest 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.
