Well-Known Wellington Artist To Show In The Michael Hirschfeld Gallery

Richard Reddaway: The Wieskirche Michael Hirschfeld Gallery, City Gallery Wellington 22 October – 18 November 2004

This week Richard Reddaway is hard at work transforming the spaces of the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery with an infestation of box-like constructions, creating an environment for Gallery visitors to explore and contemplate. His exhibition, titled The Wieskirche, opens on Friday 22 October.

The Wieskirche is a significant solo outing for Reddaway, who is an established Wellington artist. By mounting boxes covered in photographs of creeping ivy on the gallery’s walls, floor and ceiling, Reddaway introduces ideas about decoration, growth, colonisation and replication into the space. The Wieskirche project has developed from a similar project Reddaway undertook as artist in residence at the SLAK Studio, Arnhem, The Netherlands, in 2001-02.

City Gallery Wellington Director Paula Savage says: "We are delighted to mark the 5th anniversary of the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery with Richard Reddaway’s solo installation project. Over the past five years, the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery has developed a proud history of showing the work of Wellington-based artists and designers. The Michael Hirschfeld Gallery plays an important role in our city, providing both a space to showcase the work of emerging artists, and an opportunity for established artists to experiment and develop new work."

Born in Lower Hutt in 1962, Richard Reddaway studied at the School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury, gaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1985. He currently works as a lecturer in the Department of Art and Design Studies at Massey University Wellington.

Richard Reddaway will talk about his project in the Michael Hirschfeld Gallery on Wednesday 10 November at 5:30pm. Free Entry, All Welcome.
