Two Exhibitions for Festival of Photography
Two exhibitions at 40 George Street are part of the
Auckland Festival of Photography
2-24 June 2006
Paul Cullen’s ‘Attempts’ were developed he says, “In relation to 60’s conceptual art practice, and in particular the work of artists like Gordon Matta-Clark and Robert Smithson, whose work is known primarily in the form of documentation.” ‘Attempts’ are a body of photographs documenting temporary installations and forming an ongoing sculptural project that began in 1999. They are the outcome of travel (national and international) and broad research over such topics as science, architecture, literature, history, gardens and place.
“Left Luggage”; Wildly Nostalgic
Critique of the (Environmental) Politics of the Old
Lyall "is interested in the interbreeding of historical languages of classification with the unpredictable richness of the material world."
This exhibition includes new work from recent travels to Mongolia, Sarajevo, Greece, and Morocco.
