Watching Windows | Andre Hemer

Opening Saturday April 29, 2017 at 4pm
Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, Auckland

Windows can be a division, a connection or a conduit between realities, channelling daylight into interior spaces or electric light into the darkened landscape outside. In art history, a painting’s frame can offer a window to another world, while in our interconnected digital age, screens have become a kind of electronic window that can record or transmit in real time, relaying scenes from one place to another, collapsing distance and connecting timezones of night and day.

In this exhibition, presented amidst the elevated skyscapes of Titirangi and developed in collaboration between artist Andre Hemer and curator Andrew Clifford, an international network of artists negotiate the physical and digital interplay of light and space as a way to communicate ideas of place – locally, globally and imagined. Featuring Ry David Bradley (Melbourne/London/New York), Catherine Clayton-Smith (Sydney), Andre Hemer (Christchurch/Vienna), Biljana Jancic (Sydney) and Céline Struger (Vienna).
