Acclaimed international artist Simon Starling coming to Wellington's City Gallery

For the New Zealand Festival, City Gallery Wellington is excited to be presenting an exhibition by Turner Prize-winning artist Simon Starling, opening on Friday 21 February.

In Speculum is the first survey of the artist’s work in Australasia, and brings together a major new commission alongside key works that explore the relationships between art, technology, history and modernity.

Starling is a British conceptual artist who won the coveted Turner Prize in 2005 with the work Shedboatshed that involved taking a wooden shed, turning it into a boat, sailing it down the Rhine, and turning it back into a shed. His works are always interested in the making process and in the craft of being an artist.

Starling was born in England, studied in Glasgow and is currently based in Copenhagen. Each of his works has an intricate tale to tell and a narrative to uncover. His research-based art is described as obscure, but fascinating - you have to untangle complex backstories knotted up within them.

Unusual journeys have featured within several of his works. He rode a hydrogen-fuelled bicycle across the Spanish desert, and then painted a watercolour using the water it produced. To mark the Transit of Venus, Starling made a film featuring footage he shot on a volcano in Hawaii. He travelled across a Scottish loch in a small steamboat whose boiler was powered by wood chopped from the sides of the vessel, until it sank.

The show comes to Wellington from the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane. Our incoming Senior Curator Robert Leonard describes Starling’s projects as always having ‘something unexpected, excessive, witty, perverse, serendipitous, convoluted, or crafty about them‘.

Simon Starling is visiting New Zealand and will be giving a free lecture at City Gallery on Friday 21 February at 6pm. In Speculum is a partnership project between Monash University of Art, Melbourne, IMA (Institute of Modern Art), Brisbane and City Gallery Wellington.

World's Edge Exhibition Celebrates Creative Kiwis

There's no reason to have FOMO if you're sticking around Auckland this summer, because there's plenty of amazing stuff happening here in the city.

One awesome event that has caught our attention is the WORLD'S EDGE exhibition, taking place between 10am and 5pm in Silo Park from Friday 10th January until Sunday 19th January.

Through photography and painting WORLD'S EDGE explores the ways in which Kiwis have changed the world from the edge of the world with creativity and innovation.

Using an analogue form of digital photography, artist and curator Douglas Moores has twisted, folded and dissected our perspective, highlighting the beauty and surreal nature of our surroundings.

“The ocean has always been a liberating place for me. I wanted to capture the essence of the seascape and the concept of working right on the edge both physically and conceptually,” says Douglas.

Throughout the exhibition there will also be a speaker series of the best and brightest innovators from New Zealand giving their perspective on what it means to innovate from the “world’s edge”. The speakers will be announced in the next few weeks through the official website.

WORLD'S EDGE will finish with a sustainable seafood POPdining dinner supporting the work of Sustainable Coastlines and their efforts to look after our environment. 

Admission to WORLD’S EDGE is free and the exhibition will be open each day from 10am until 5pm in Silo 6 at Silo Park, 96 Jellicoe Street, Auckland.

WRANGLER HAS YOUR SUMMER FESTIVAL WARDROBE SORTED

Words by Steven Fernandez.

Wrangler have just launched their latest Festival collection, a range of authentic denim for both men and women, just in time for the festival season.

The Festival collection has a heavy psychedelic theme, making these the perfect items to be wearing to the Big Day Out, Rhythm & Vines, Laneway and all the other gigs you’re going along to this summer.

Psychedelic, you ask? Check out the campaign shots below to see what we mean!

For the ladies denim includes colour-blocking details with contrast panels, as well as vintage inspired pieces. The key styles feature punk leopard and abstract monotone prints. Biker detailing is seen in exposed zips and leather looks.

Then for the dudes, Wrangler has reworked their signature indigo base shades with contrast panelling and modern fabrications, including acid washes as a nod to the festival season. Tees and tanks for those days in the crowd under the sun feature minimalist graphics inspired by music, of course.

The Festival collection will be available in Wrangler stockists and online here from early December.
