100 Days of Drawing


Pelin Hall: 100 Days of Drawing

6 July - 18 July
Opening in the Main Gallery

100 Days of Drawing is an illustrative performance. Just like a personal journal, Pelin Hall has created something every day for 100 days culminating in an exhibition at the Depot Artspace. She has also been documenting and publishing her drawings each day on her blog site.

Because of the diary-like nature of the project it will be a very intimate and perhaps confessional process. By the end of it Hall hopes to have learnt more about herself and her technical and emotional capacity. She believes drawing is a fundamental artistic skill, that it is a discipline like all other art forms not just a sketch or preparatory activity. Her drawings are finished works that stand in contrast to the perfect imagery we are exposed to in magazines and other media.

Dwight Booysens: Designing Ideas
6 July - 18 July
Opening in the Vernacular Lounge

Inspired by Gifford Jackson’s New Zealand Industrial Design Pathfinder exhibition, designer and student Dwight Booysens has set up his own design show here at the Depot Artspace!

Designing Ideas is a demonstration of a young designer’s oeuvre which takes you through Dwight’s project based and exploration work, featuring his unique chair design ‘The Rail Chair’. Dwight’s work displays an alternative way of thinking and bold aesthetics. The exhibition offers a brief overview of his design process and initial design ideation; it is a show of his distinct design language and solutions for a range of very different contexts and fields.

Dwight Booysens, 22 years of age, is a young Auckland based designer and student.
