Exhibition Preview: Tuesday 21 January 2014, 5.30pm
Exhibition runs: 22 January – 22 February 2014

Blue Oyster Art Project Space
16 Dowling Street, Dunedin

The Blue Oyster Art Project Space is pleased to present a major new work by Zac Langdon-Pole entitled [sic].

Langdon-Pole’s work frequently traces the relationships between the unseen or unknown and the concrete or tautological. His exhibitions often combine close and careful attention with dramatically constructed scenes, to reveal meeting points of material, history, fiction and narrative.

The Latin adverb sic, literally meaning, “thus” or in full, sic erat scriptum, “thus it was written”, is inserted immediately after a quoted word, phrase or larger text, to indicate that the quotation has been transcribed exactly as found in the original source, complete with any erroneous, archaic or other nonstandard forms of presentation.

Langdon-Pole’s [sic] has involved the removal of all of the lights, fixtures and other light generating devices from the household of an unknown writer. These objects have then been reinstalled in the gallery both to illuminate the space of the exhibition and to provide the knowledge that somewhere there is a writer’s house with no lights.

Zac Langdon-Pole (b.1988) graduated with a BFA (Hons) from Elam School of Fine Arts in 2010. Recent exhibitions include; Skeins, Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne, 2013; Pale Ideas, Michael Lett, Auckland, 2013; Soft Quick Thoughts, Window, Auckland, 2013; and the National Contemporary Art Award, Waikato Museum of Art, Hamilton, 2013
