press release

Spencer Finch, the Gallery's first international visiting artist for 2008, brings together a series of artworks that test, contemplate and record his response to being located in an unfamiliar physical and cultural environment. By focusing on the most rudimentary aspects of experience, such as sunlight, weather patterns and dust particles, Finch not only reveals how our environment is in a constant state of flux he also compels us to think about the complex relationship between looking, its mediation and our memory of that moment or event. A visiting artists project supported by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
