Invitation | Nic Moon

Contemporary Art

Nic Moon
Tissue Memory
7-25 October

Opening preview: Tuesday 7 October
5:30-7:30 pm

This body of work delves into the changing implications of life for many of us post the Christchurch earthquakes and in the wake of our rapidly changing weather patterns. We are faced with a stark reminder of our transience within the cycles and forces of nature.

My work touches on aspects of trauma and repair, human touch, fragility and strength, and transience and renewal. I am exploring the physical and psychological effects of living in a beautiful landscape that also holds the memory of regular violent change.

Saturday 11 October, 3pm

Nic and Lars von Minden present a talk on aspects of their Ranui Library artist/architect collaboration, which opens October 4th.
