What’s on @ Lopdell

Serene Thain – Architectural Installation

January 7 2013 - February 9 2013
The materiality of everyday objects in our daily environment is the main interest and focus in many of Serene Thain’s artworks. These objects – found in our drawers, cupboards, bags, shelves in discount stores or hardware shops – are so much a part of our lives that we hardly notice them.

In the Curiosity Cabinet: Ontogeny by Michelle Wilkinson

Exhibition runs 16 January – February 2013
Michelle takes inspiration from elements in nature that are usually too small to be detected by the naked eye or are skimmed over and taken for granted. "I magnify them to create jewellery that contains forms that are at once familiar and unknown, derived from nature, creative explorations of scientific ideas". - Michelle Wilkinson

New glass pieces by John Penman

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio. The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>

Game Review: Midsomer Murders Meets First Year Philosophy

Developed by The Chinese Room, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture sees the player exploring what appears to be a recently abandoned idyllic English village trying to figure out where everybody's gone. Spoiler: they've gone to the rapture. (On a serious note, this review contains plot spoilers.) More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Clear Science

It was really after his move to Wellington, to Victoria University, that it became apparent that Sir Paul Cllaghan was much more than an eminent physicist... More>>

Francis Cook: Weekend SportzMania! All Blacks! Netball!

Sports were on all weekend. I normally don’t write about sports but with Richie McCaw tipped to be the next Prime Minister, and Colin Craig arguing sports are almost as important as politics, I thought “what better time to start!” More>>
