Marabar Caves

Runs from Friday August 4 to Saturday September 2, 2017
Public programme: Saturday August 26 at 1pm

Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland

Marabar Caves is an exhibition that takes its title from the caves featured in E.M. Forster’s 1924 novel ‘Passage to India.’ This is the first exhibition in a series of three entitled ‘Resources of the Social Imagination’ which looks at the relationship between narrative pleasure and contemporary art.

Audio, ceramics, embroidery and exhibition design form a response to Forster’s description of the caves. A narrative written and performed by Evangeline Riddiford-Graham is accompanied by a series of ceramic works by Tom Hinton. Recently Areez Katki has been investigating non-linguistic narratives using synaesthesia and applied arts textile practice. Devices designed to lean against and languish on have been constructed and embroidered upon for the exhibition.

Saturday August 26 at 1pm | Balamohan Shingade (Assistant Director, St Paul St) and organiser Victoria Wynne-Jones discuss the exhibition in relation to their own readings of Passage to India.
