A Short Run: A Selection of New Zealand Lathe-Cut Records, curated by Luke Wood

At the foothills of the Southern Alps in the late 1980s,  Peter King re-engineered a then-outdated technology, developing a new way of “cutting” audio into transparent polycarbonate plastic.

Lo-fi but affordable, Peter King’s lathe cut records sparked an explosion of limited-edition releases from NZ’s innovative underground music scenes. Generally produced in runs of 20–100 copies, these records often featured bespoke hand-made cover art, liner notes, booklets, and various other inserts and modifications; audio, artefacts, aesthetics, and attitudes that are practically unfeasible within the economies of scale required by the commercial music industry.

Researched and curated by Luke Wood, Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at the University of Canterbury’s Ilam School of Fine Arts, A Short Run brings together a broad selection of these releases, alongside more recent developments and outcomes of lathe-cutting record technology. Drawing from the private collections of artists, musicians, bands, and small independent record labels around the country, this exhibition explores the intersection between music and design in the radical margins of New Zealand culture.

Commissioned in partnership with Objectspace.

Curator bio

Luke Wood has developed primary research for this exhibition of New Zealand-made lathe cut records out of an interest in the potential for the distribution of music/sound via physical formats in a pervasively digital future. Luke has recently set up the 'art school record label', Ilam Press Records, a research initiative and subsidiary of the Ilam Press; an inhouse publishing workshop at the Ilam School of Fine Arts which he runs in collaboration with colleague Aaron Beehre.

Luke’s broader research interests and outcomes are motivated by the rapidly expanding practices and roles of graphic design in the 21st century. Alongside Brad Haylock (RMIT), he has recently co-edited a book, featuring contributions from leading international designers, teachers and academics, to be published by Occasional Papers (London) in late 2019. Luke also co-created the award-winning graphic design publications Head Full of Snakes and The National Grid.

Ngā Hokohoko

Ngā Hokohoko explores the kaupapa of hokohoko–exchange, trade, barter–within the contemporary jewellery community in Aotearoa.

From Areta Wilkinson’s luxurious gold Hine-Āhua and Huiarei (2013) to Alan Preston’s Pāua Chain (1994), the exhibition looks at how we have shared ideas, materials and techniques.

Featuring several of the most innovative jewellers from the past 40 years, Ngā Hokohoko charts connections and contrasts in materials and pivotal influences such as mātauranga Māori and Pasifika adornment.

The exhibition proposes hokohoko as a framework for bicultural dynamics and features the work of Pauline Bern, Matthew McIntyre-Wilson (Taranaki, Ngā Māhanga and Titahi), Neke Moa (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kāi Tahu, Ngāti Porou, Tūwharetoa), Alan Preston, Joe Sheehan and Areta Wilkinson (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Mamoe, Waitaha).

Exhibiting the work of these six artists together activates a conversation. Ngā Hokohoko presents an essential, nuanced understanding of indigenous materials and practice, reflected in the work of Māori and Pākehā makers.

To The Moon: Laurie Anderson and Hsin-Chien Huang

COVID-19 UPDATE: In the interests of safety the virtual reality experience in To The Moon: Laurie Anderson & Hsin-Chien Huang will be removed for the remainder of the exhibition.

The VR experience takes place in a small space with less than two metres between participants and the headsets are reused each session. As this doesn’t meet recommendations for social distancing, we feel taking this precaution is the right thing to do to keep our visitors and staff safe.

When we reopen, you’ll still be able to see Laurie Anderson & Hsin-Chien Huang’s mesmerising video projections free of charge, with no booking necessary. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Noho ora mai.

Presented by The Dowse Art Museum and the New Zealand Festival of the Arts.

Fifty years after man first landed on the Moon, art pioneer and icon Laurie Anderson is flying us all there with captivating virtual reality artwork To The Moon. Developed with fellow artist Hsin-Chien Huang, this immersive experience takes you on a cutting-edge voyage of sight, sound and imagination to our nearest cosmic neighbour.

Escapism and future-forward art intersect as the sensation of flight intermingles with the delight of navigating a fantastic alternative lunar landscape as envisaged by Laurie, who was the first artist-in-residence at NASA. Prepare for lift off with an accompanying installation featuring film, images and music.

Conceived as pure artwork, To The Moon takes us closer to the lunar surface than many have ever gone before – and the journey is just as important as the destination. “The moon has a very inspiring, dreamlike existence,” says Laurie. “Secretly, all I want to do is to let people fly.”

To The Moon VR experience commissioned by The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark; The National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taipei, Taiwan; and National Taiwan Normal University. To The Moon A/V experience originally commissioned by The Manchester International Festival.

Presented in Wellington as part of the New Zealand Festival of the Arts. Thanks to: Wellington Amenities Fund, Hutt City Council

Whatu Manawa: Celebrating the Weaving of Matekino Lawless

I attribute my knowledge of weaving to my kuia who nurtured me during my childhood. They were a major contributing factor to the skills I have acquired, and I owe my approach to the art of weaving to their teachings.Matekino Lawless

Whatu Manawa: Celebrating the Weaving of Matekino Lawless showcases the work of renowned weaver and one of our living treasures Matekino Lawless QSM (Tainui), who celebrates her 92 birthday in February 2020.

The Rotoiti-based weaver has spent much of her career assisting with the retention and continuation of raranga (weaving) traditions. Whatu Manawa features a combination of Matekino’s signature works, chosen from a comprehensive collection of kākahu, whāriki and kete created between the 1980s and today.

Exploring a range of raranga and raranga whatu, the exhibition illustrates Matekino’s dedication to her craft with specific forms such as tarapouahi, pūrea (kākahu), kete whakairo, kete tauira and kete pīngao, and materials such as harakeke, pīngao, kiekie and natural dyes such as paru.

Matekino says, “I attribute my knowledge of weaving to my kuia who nurtured me during my childhood. They were a major contributing factor to the skills I have acquired, and I owe my approach to the art of weaving to their teachings.” She has been weaving for over sixty years and continues to weave daily.

Matekino is also a significant advocate for the legacy of raranga traditions and has gained international acknowledgement and national recognition through being awarded the Auckland Art Museum Fellowship, the Queens Service Medal (QSM) and Creative NZ: Te Waka Toi’s Kingi Ihaka Art Award and Te Waka Toi Supreme Award, Te Tohu Aroha mo Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu.

She was a founding member of Te Kāhui Whiritoi, established in 2006 to recognise individuals who have contributed at a national level to the retention and promotion of the Māori weaving arts.

Developed and toured by Tauranga Art Gallery.

Human Hand: Fiona Amundsen and Tim Corballis

With Ingrid Horrocks, Sue Kirsch, Joanna Macy, and Yvonne Morris. 

From a 1970s experimental micro-city, to a structure meant to replicate human life in outer space, and the home of the largest intercontinental ballistic missile deployed by the US Air Force: Human Hand by Fiona Amundsen and Tim Corballis takes us on a journey through video and photography to three historically-laden sites in Arizona, USA.

As part of Fiona Amundsen’s tenure of Fulbright Scholar Award in 2019, Amundsen and Corballis spent time at all three sites – the micro-city Arcosanti, talking with people who had resided there since its heyday; Biosphere 2, a closed structure built to model global systems and demonstrate the viability of supporting human life in outer space; and the Titan Missile Museum, home of a Titan II Missile.

Human Hand brings these divergent images and perspectives together, showing a range of views, from the alternative lifestyle of Arcosanti, to the woman who was in charge of turning the key to detonate the missile during the Cold War.

Amundsen also met with deep ecology theorist, Buddhist and environmental activist Joanna Macy, whose thinking is integral to this new work. The exhibition title, Human Hand, is taken from a passage within Macy’s book Coming Back to Life in which she articulates how feelings of despair and anguish can be used to confront the harsh realities of our deepening global crises, such as climate change, species extinction and the ongoing threat of nuclear disaster.

The exhibition seeks out ways of living in a sprawling, urbanised and militarised world. At the three sites Amundsen and Corballis respond to, people have coped differently with the consequences of military capitalism—hoping either to build alternatives, to escape, or to live right at the heart of it.

The artworks ask how lens-based imagery may give agency to the nuanced reality of social lives in the wake of military histories. Amundsen and Corballis are interested in how such imagery can advocate for the human-to-human care that our present moment is so desperately in need of, sharing and promoting a sacred responsibility for life and living.

WATCH: Join artist Fiona Amundsen and writer Tim Corballis in conversation with curator Melanie Oliver of Christchurch Art Gallery online here.

Fiona Amundsen

Fiona Amundsen’s practice explores how documentary photographic and filmic images can enable a connected, active and caring relationship to the ramifications of painful historical experiences that live on in the present.

She is interested in establishing relationships between specific historical events, the social responsibility of witnessing, and the ethics of documentary photographic and filmic practices. She edits declassified military and government produced archival imagery with her own present-day photography and filming to investigate the potential for imagery to perform a kind of visual listening and documentary witnessing of acts of colonial imperial violence, be it historical or not. Her images enable an ethical caring based in relationships of imagining over reified visibility, and listening over cognitive knowing.

Her current project, Coming Back to Life (2019 -), explores relationships between military nuclear technologies, military-capitalism, nuclear environmental destruction and spirituality. Prior to this new series, for the last five years Fiona explored alternative modalities for memorialising stories and experiences associated with the Asia-Pacific War (WWII). Her recent projects have focused on the 82-day Battle of Okinawa (It Was a Cave Like This/Violent Wind of Steel, 2014-18) 1944 ‘Cowra Breakout’ in Australia, where just over 1,000 Japanese POWs attempted to escape, resulting in 235 deaths (A Body that Lives, 2017); the March 1945 American aerial fire-bombing of Tokyo (To Each Other/A Body that Lives, 2015-16); the plight of Ben Kuroki, the only American of Japanese descent permitted to fight in aerial combat in the Asia Pacific Theatre of WWII (Way of Life, 2016).

Tim Corballis

Tim Corballis’s writing deals with how political experience can be reflected in the composition of literary text. He is based in Wellington, where he works as a lecturer at the Centre for Science in Society at Victoria University of Wellington. He has published five novels as well as a substantial corpus of essays and art writing. He has received major awards and prizes for his writing, with his essay ‘Winter’ winning the Landfall Essay Competition in 2013. Corballis has been the recipient for a variety of residencies, including the 2003 Randell Cottage Writers Trust Residency, the 2005 Creative New Zealand Berlin Writer’s Residency and the 2015 Victoria University of Wellington Creative New Zealand Writer in Residence. He has turned to speculative fiction with his latest novel Our Future is in the Air (Victoria University Press, 2017).

Corballis and Amundsen have been collaborating since 2004, most recently on Machine Wind (2015) based on a visit by Amundsen to the remnants of Syonan Jinja, a Japanese Shinto shrine built during WWII by Australian and British POWs in Singapore.
