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.
