Saturate every atom at Māngere Arts Centre

Opening this Saturday, 29 March at Māngere Arts Centre - Ngā Tohu o Uenuku 'saturate every atom’* is a free group exhibition that presents the work of six artists: Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Jae Hoon Lee, Janet Lilo, Peter Madden, Rachel Shearer and Martin Thompson.

Supported by the Māngere – Ōtāhuhu Local Board, ‘saturate every atom’ offers multiple perspectives on our contemporary digital experience. The works relate in different ways to our current situation of living in a screen based culture.

Annie Bradley, Auckland Council Arts and Culture Public Programmes Leader, says the artists skilfully use a wide range of mediums from video and collage to sound work and drawing.

“We are excited to have these art works at Māngere Arts Centre - Ngā Tohu o Uenuku. These artists have something in common: they break images and sound down into small pieces and microscopic particles, opening up wild and imaginative spaces.” Bradley says.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
