Saturate every atom at Māngere Arts Centre

Media release

26 March 2014

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.

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. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

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>>
