The potent symbolism of full-face motorbike helmets exploded into our collective consciousness with the Springboks tour of 1981. Documentary photographs show police in full riot gear facing off against helmeted protestors – those divisive battlelines having since been described as the moment when New Zealand lost its innocence; also the moment that the full-face motorbike helmet become forever associated with protest and activism.

Vincent Ward - film stills from The Whisper of the Trees and Breath, part of the cinematic installation Voyage II – Ardent Spirit (2011)

Our most iconic movie director has reinvented himself as an artist, transforming some of the themes that have populated his films into video installations, photography, and paintings. At the Govett Brewster last December, the works were housed in one location under the title Breath – the fleeting intensity of life. The disciplines have been split for the Auckland incarnation, with Inhale: moving image at the Gus Fisher, and Exhale: two dimensional works at the Pah Homestead.
