Full list of artists launched

MEDIA RELEASE - 6 November 2006

Curator Victoria Lynn is delighted to announce the second and final list of artists for turbulence: the 3rd Auckland Triennial.

Israeli artist Michal Rovner joins Isaac Julien, Phil Collins, Mona Hatoum and Willie Doherty as one of the headline international artists at the multi-venue exhibition opening on 9 March 2007.

Rovner’s work was a highlight at the 2003 Venice Biennale. She has exhibited widely in Europe and the US. She will show a recent video work that uses flames from oilrig smokestacks as a symbol of constant change, unpredictability and volatility.

Don’t miss Carlos Capelán, a Swedish resident exiled from Uruguay, who will create one of his large-scale wall paintings (above) in the New Gallery.

The first artist to leave for the Auckland Triennial is Alexandros Georgiou. The Greek artist will travel from India’s holy city of Varanasi to Auckland entirely by public transport. He leaves this month and hopes to arrive in time for the opening! Along the way, he’ll create works responding to his environment and post them to ARTSPACE where they’ll be exhibited.

For the first time, the Auckland Triennial includes film. Four documentaries from artists Chantal Akerman (Belgium), George Gittoes (Australia), Alfredo Jaar (Chile/USA) and Laura Waddington (UK) will screen at Academy Cinemas on weekends throughout the exhibition.
