Paton, Kim (2007) Everything Thought and Remembered. UNSPECIFIED, UNSPECIFIED.
Abstract or Summary
An explosion of new art by New Zealand artists. City Gallery launches it’s third Telecom Prospect – a curated group show drawing on the most vital and curious work made by New Zealand artists over the last three years. Each Telecom Prospect has had a different curator and this time the baton has been handed to City Gallery Wellington’s Senior Curator Heather Galbraith who arrived back in New Zealand in 2004 after twelve years based in London. The exhibition is structured around three intersecting thematic clusters which have been derived from observations of and queries about current trends and debates: contemporary abstraction; a reconfiguration of the everyday and augmented reality. A connective thread weaving through the exhibition is an interest in collaborative practices and the experiential dynamics between art works and their audiences. The exhibition includes work made in New Zealand and abroad in many media including painting, photography, sculpture, film and video, jewellery and sound. New works will be premiered and time-based works will evolve. A rich sampling of New Zealand contemporary practice, Telecom Prospect is the only recurring group exhibition of this scale to focus solely on New Zealand practice. Everything Thought and Remembered is Paton's response to an invitation to make a work for City Gallery Wellington's Reading Room. The work, a large wooden structure resembles a road side stall or small bach sits empty as a proposition or challenge to what it's future use or potential function may be. The structure is built out of minimal new materials and is designed to be re-clad with recycled materials from site to site as it's use and function changes.
