…and let me breathe’ consists of original artworks, including chine collé collages (made from hand-painted or lithographically printed papers) and neon-lit wall sculptures, assembled together with items of furniture and flowers. The installation format allows for the combination and interplay of ideas and materials derived from different sources. Nuala references the ‘furniture’ of early modernist works by Matisse and Malevich, as well as the use of light and text by conceptual artists such as Flavin and Kosuth. The assemblage of artworks and objects calls attention to the way in which things are thrown together in the chaos of metropolitan space, forming accidental relations among which new possibilities might yet be glimpsed.

Nuala Gregory is an Associate Professor at the University of Auckland and an artist specialising in painting, printmaking and drawing. Her work has been exhibited in many countries.
