Opening event Friday April 6 from 5.30 – 7.30pm
Depot Artspace, Auckland
The Hubble telescope is humanity’s window out into space; but the universe is huge, incomprehensibly so. The farther we look into the distance the further back we are looking in time. What does it really look like way way out there? What does it look like now? What else is out there?
Drawing from the ubiquity of space photographs in popular culture The Undiscovered Nebulae explores space, time, distance, scale and the need for humans to label unmanageable things in an attempt to understand them. In this new body of work created in camera on film, Andie Pryce references the notion that film does not lie, while also questioning reality – there is no way this could be real, could it?
In Conversation with Andie Pryce to celebrate International Dark Sky Week
Monday 16 April 6:00 – 7:30pm
International Dark Sky Week was created in 2003 by high school student Jennifer Barlow, to help preserve the wonder of the night sky, and draws attention to problems associated with light pollution while promoting simple solutions for mitigation. It is held in April in the week of the new moon closest to Astronomy Day, and this year runs from Sunday April 15 to Saturday April 21, with the new moon on Monday April 16.
Join Andie Pryce in a conversation about dark skies, stretching the mind and travels to find deep space.
