Transformance - exhibition and artist talk
|When:||4 June 2011 to 3 July 2011|
|Venue:||TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre|
|Phone:|| 09 639 2010|
Presented by MIC Toi Rerehiko and the Wallace Arts Trust, Transformance showcases digital media by four graduate artists from AUT, with support from Asia NZ, and as part of the 2011 Auckland Festival of Photography.
Transformance explores themes underpinned by myths and ideas of reflection and appearance, illusion and essence, imitation and emanation. While these ideas are fundamental to the human condition, what catapults them into the present - and in some cases predictive future - is the sensitive and intelligent use of digital media.
Working in their respective digital imagery fields, Jane, Grace, Olivia and Nick are recent graduates of AUT, and have all achieved a high degree of excellence in their practice. Their cross-disciplinary approach from the various platforms of Graphic Design, Interdisciplinary and Photography majors at AUT, highlights the new ways in which artists are working today and the potential of digital media as a unifying medium.
