Medusa

With a head of poisonous snakes and a murderous gaze, Medusa has come to epitomise female monstrosity. Caravaggio painted her. Shakespeare wrote about her. Freud had a bloody field day. From acclaimed feminist theatre makers Julia Croft, Virginia Frankovich and Nisha Madhan comes a new work of dissection and dissent on female bodies, female violence and female rage. With Medusa as their muse, and Jill Soloway as their spiritual guide, Medusa is a blood boiler, a stealthy deconstruction, and one of feminism’s great reclamations. “Postmodern performance art meets power pop politics – powerfully delivered.” – Total Theatre UK on If There’s Not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming

Isabella Loudon: Labyrinth

Labyrinth is a sculptural drawing made from concrete-covered twine.

Drawing is usually the starting point for Isabella Loudon, a way to process ideas that are then developed into sculptural forms. Her use of concrete, a material recognised for its strength and toughness, is instead explored for its fragility. It resembles a brittle surface, covering and stiffening the twine. Similarly, the delicacy of the twine, its softness to touch, is transformed when it meets the concrete. It becomes rough and twisted, like wire breaking down or being pulled apart. Partially constructed within this window space, traces of the making remain, providing a sense of human connection to the structure and an insight to the process of the making itself. The form that remains is unknown, pulsing and contorting from behind the window. Like a labyrinth, it is easy to find yourself lost within the sculptural web with no way of knowing the end from the beginning, a seemingly infinite network of travelling twine.

Ways of Being: Representation and Photography from The Dowse Collection

This exhibition brings together a selection of photographs collected by The Dowse since the 1980s, to consider how representation in Aotearoa New Zealand is evolving alongside changes in our society.

Ways of Being includes the work of six photographers who have used relationship building, collaboration and self-determination to delve deeper into peoples’ lives and highlight diverse cultural and social perspectives. Each artist places importance on taking time to gain the trust of the people represented in their images (physically and symbolically), so their stories can be shared.

For instance, the brightly-coloured cibachrome prints of Glenn Jowitt (1955-2014), are a unique record of the changing face of Auckland, and depict peoples from across Te Moana nui a Kiwa (the Pacific) in the 1980s. Using a documentary approach, Jowitt took photographs in a quick and responsive manner, which celebrated daily routines and special events. His ability to take such images came as a result of the time he spent fostering a rapport with neighbours, elders and leaders in his neighbourhood. Through his photography he created lifelong relationships that saw him invited to our neighbouring islands too.

The studio portraits of Rebecca Swan (1968) also began when she approached members of her community to take photographs that explore gender diversity. To make this series, Assume Nothing (1995-2003), Swan interviewed and workshopped ideas for her final photographs with her participants, creating an atmosphere where each person was empowered to present themselves as strong, proud individuals.

Ngahuia Harrison (1988, Ngāpuhi, Ngātiwai) takes large format photographs that explore her iwi and hapū connection to place in Te Taitokerau (Northland). In the artist’s marae, photographs take on a similar role to whakairo (carving) or tukutuku panels in their representation of tūpuna: kindling her interest in the medium’s capacity “to have great histories explode out of something so still”. Harrison’s series E takarae ki te muri i raro mata raranga mai kaewa ki te rangi ko au ki raro whakaaro rangi ai (2017), depicts her whānau in still-life and portraits, as a response to her hapū navigating a fraught Treaty of Waitangi settlement process.

Today, the increasing presence of smart phones and social media sees the photographic image more present in our lives than ever before, affecting how we represent ourselves and others. In our post truth era, where opinions can be shaped in seconds, Ways of Being considers what can be learnt from slowing down and really looking.

The artists in Ways of Being are Andrew Ross, Bruce Connew, Glenn Jowitt, Mark Adams, Ngahuia Harrison and Rebecca Swan.

SOLO 2018

Andrew Beck
Deanna Dowling
Sonya Lacey
Dave Marshall
Matthew McIntyre Wilson
Annie Mackenzie

SOLO is a biennial exhibition that showcases new work by Wellington artists. Each artist is commissioned and supported by The Dowse to create a project especially for this exhibition. Featuring contemporary art across a range of media, the SOLO exhibition series provides a snapshot of art being made in Wellington and provides opportunities for artists to display new work.

SOLO 2018 will include local artists Andrew Beck, Deanna Dowling, Sonya Lacey, Dave Marshall, Matthew McIntyre Wilson and Annie Mackenzie, with projects that span photography, film, ceramics, weaving and sculpture.

Andrew Beck

Andrew Beck makes sculptures that show or challenge the photographic process. Though his work can be called photography, it does not capture reality; instead the work plays with light, space, composition and architecture. Beck’s new installation created for SOLO 2018 deconstructs the photographic surface, exploring the line between reality and representation, self and collective.

Deanna Dowling

Deanna Dowling’s newest work is about impermanence and the cyclical building practices that are common in Japanese construction. Alongside video footage recorded in Japan of sites significant to the history of construction, this installation includes a section of wooden joinery salvaged from a house under demolition in Tokyo, a remnant that is characteristic of the short life span buildings have in Japanese cities.

Sonya Lacey

Sonya Lacey’s new video installation Weekend imagines the St Bride Foundation swimming pool as a place for workers in the London newspaper printing industry to relax and socialise. To create this work Lacey has washed sheets of newspaper until the content becomes abstract, floating forms, that are then reconfigured into film. This process of translation and mediation follows her ongoing interest in the fluidity of language and information systems.

Dave Marshall

Dave Marshall will consider the utopian ideals and strange realities of people coming together as a community. Reflecting on memories of his own religious upbringing, Marshall has made a series of paintings using a pre-industrial paint recipe that consists of milk, ground seashells, clay, copper and charcoal. He continues an enquiry into traditional methods to ask, what might we still learn about ourselves from the past?

Matthew McIntyre Wilson

Matthew McIntyre Wilson (Taranaki, Ngā Māhanga and Titahi) is interested in the cultural heritage of harakeke and has been learning the craft of net making. In the early twentieth century, Te Rangi Hiroa documented the knots, construction methods and application for different nets, offering important insights to historical Māori fishing practices. McIntyre Wilson’s installation for SOLO 2018 includes fishing nets made from techniques described by Hiroa that would traditionally have been used for particular types of fish, seasons and situations.

Annie Mackenzie

Weaving, tradition and community are central to the work of Annie Mackenzie. Featuring hand-woven works that nod to domestic and utilitarian textiles, Mackenzie draws on the history and culture of some of the established weaving groups she has worked with. Many of these organisations have been running since the 1970s, and are examples of an environment and resource developed to sustain the production of weaving throughout Aotearoa.

WANTOK

Dulcie Stewart (Fiji/Australia)
Jasmine Togo-Brisby (Vanuatu/Aotearoa New Zealand)
Luisa Tora (Fiji/Aotearoa New Zealand)
Salote Tawale (Fiji/Australia)
Tufala Meri (Reina and Molana Sutton, Solomon Islands/Aotearoa New Zealand)

The exhibition WANTOK displays Melanesian knowledge and practice in the diaspora, looking at shared cultural values expressed through relationships to hair.

In many Pacific cultures, the head and hair are considered sacred and infused with spiritual and symbolic meaning. Various events mark rites of passage through hair, such as marriage, mourning and coming-of-age: young women of the Lau group in Fiji wore virgin locks until they married; chiefly Fijian men cut their hair during a mourning period; and in parts of the Solomon Islands, teenage boys undergo a haircutting ceremony to signify their transition to manhood. The artists in WANTOK, Dulcie Stewart (Fiji/Australia), Jasmine Togo-Brisby (Vanuatu/Aotearoa New Zealand), Luisa Tora (Fiji/Aotearoa New Zealand), Salote Tawale (Fiji/Australia) and Tufala Meri (Reina and Molana Sutton, Solomon Islands/Aotearoa New Zealand), display Melanesian knowledge and practice in the diaspora, addressing issues of decolonisation, gender and beauty through the cultural values associated with hair.

An Introduction to Agile

FREE An Introduction to Agile Two-hour workshop Our very popular introductory workshop gives you a comprehensive overview of Agile from its origins to the different roles on a team, the artifacts you will create and use, and the lifecycle of a project. We will describe what an Agile project looks like and how it's run, including processes such as sprint planning, estimation, demonstrations and retrospectives. We'll talk about the improvements we've seen in projects and organisations that have adopted Agile, such as better communication, clearer specifications, less waste and less rework, improved prioritisation and planning, and happier, more productive teams. We'll also address the challenges you may face when Agile practices are introduced into your organisation for the first time. At the end of the workshop, we'll run a quick retrospective so you can tell us what you liked and what we can improve on. Retrospectives support continuous improvement, one of the core principles of Agile, and you will get hands-on experience of this key practice. Topics covered include:* What is Agile and where has it come from* The differences between Agile and traditional Waterfall development* Roles: product owner, scrum master, scrum team* Artifacts: user stories, product backlog, sprint backlog* The sprint rhythm: sprint planning, estimation, demonstration, retrospective* Benefits you can expect and challenges you may encounter This workshop is intended for anyone working in an organisation or on a project team who wants to learn about how Agile can make their projects more successful.
