South Seas Picnic Lawn

South Seas Picnic Lawn.

South Seas Picnic Lawn presents a free event as part of The Finge Festival 2013.
Brave hearted Southern Sea citizens combine forces to bring an evening of artistic expression.

On February 16th from 5-11pm on the Lagoon Lawn ( next to the Saint John’s Bar on Welington waterfront ) there will be a large 2M square, hand constructed outdoor aluminium frame which, when darkness falls, will have a screen inserted for projection.

A masked arrival by boat via the lagoon will be welcomed to open the space.

Artists will paint during the early evening-inspired by their interpretation of what it means to be in this adventuresome part of the world.

Sculpture and design will assume strategic placement.

Other live artistic entertainment will share the space and time.

Film Archive: Movie ‘Tabu 1931’ – Silent black and white with sound track.

Clare O’Leary: Wellington film maker – Original material.

Bent Designs Ltd: Outdoor projection screen and sculpture.

Di McMillan: Sculptor – Upcycle-renewz.

The Conch: Masked interaction.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
