Geophagy is a project concerned with place, how we look at it and represent it. Ruth Watson’s longstanding interest in cartographic representation is part of this, expressed in two distinct ways: video projections, and drawings and maps. These drawings and maps supplement and question the main installation. A third element, a cartographic drawn line, links all of the works.

The Fairy Falls, a solo exhibition by Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist Cushla Donaldson, negotiates the world of finance we inhabit in which the Markets have an omnipotent presence. In the world of finance, objects are counted according to an abstract quantification which registers price differentials and looks for ways in which the differences between objects are tradable with a view to seizing value. Consequently, for the markets, it is irrelevant which wine tastes better: the question is rather which wine is most tradable.

There is an element of triumph in every gesture of defiance. “But still, like air, I’ll rise” wrote Maya Angelou in 1978. Writing of resilience under oppression, she is speaking for her race and gender in an address of historical and structural oppression of Black Americans. Angelou’s is a “confident voice of strength that recognizes its own power and will no longer be pushed into passivity." It’s an attitude of powerful dissent that the works in this exhibition have in common.

Come and experience Ivan Mršić's Kakokarangaphonia Orchestra – an experimental sound art ensemble comprised of musicians, sound artists and enthusiasts who will play together for the first time. This unpredictable one-hour event is guided only by a random composition, based on binary code, that the performers will then translate into improvised sounds and movement.
