First exhibition in 2008 opens 1 February

You Are Here

Kah Bee Chow, Fiona Connor, Finn Ferrier, Alex Monteith, John Ward-Knox

Curated by Ariane Craig-Smith, ARTSPACE 2007 Curatorial Intern

Exhibition dates: 2 February – 1 March 2008
Opening: Friday 1 February 6pm

The 2008 ARTSPACE programme opens with You Are Here, Ariane Craig-Smith’s graduation exhibition. This is the culmination of her 2007 Curatorial Internship at ARTSPACE.

You Are Here explores the practices of five Auckland-based artists and examines strategies of mapping expressed within their work.

Kah Bee Chow, Fiona Connor, Finn Ferrier, Alex Monteith and John Ward-Knox present new works which extend the idea of the map and its propositions beyond the page, to consider personal strategies of mapping space, place and motion.

Through consideration of an architectural detail, or propelling the body into and through the landscape, through a plotting of potential journeys or suggestion of a new viewpoint, these works push and pull at our familiar relationships to location.
