Art comes in many forms
Corban Estate Art Centre

Corban Estate Arts Centre's latest exhibitions feature artists Laura Marsh, Galia Amsel and Chiara Corbelletto. These three exhibitions are on display from 7 March till 13 April 2014.

A Thinner Line is an installation of artworks by Laura Marsh that collectively consider the line between life and death. Marsh’s latest exhibition features new works developed during her time in Colombia, South America on an artist’s residency.

Internationally acclaimed glass artist Galia Amsel’s survey exhibition Take Ten, showcases ten cast glass works. These works represent ten years of making since leaving the UK and settling in West Auckland. We see the fundamental influence the surrounding landscape and climate has had on Amsel’s evolving glass practice.

Chiara Corbelletto’s Morphic Field 2 presents a series of floating and ethereal sculptural works, visualizing how forms may emerge from space. Corbelletto’s selection of sculptures are inspired by current theories in physics, and transformed by the idea of a unified field of potentiality as the ultimate fabric of reality.

On offer is a full range of free art gallery activities. Auckland based artists Galia Amsel and Chiara Corbelletto will give artist talks at CEAC’s Open Arts Day Saturday 29 March at 11am and 2pm. Laura Marsh will be making string drawings at her kids workshop Saturday 5 April, 11am. All materials provided, no bookings required.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
