Home What is home? comes to us in a slow burn of revelation in the hands of the artists in this exhibition. The artists, each connected to the Australasia Pacific Region look at assumptions of home as a given. Questions of where we come from? and, how long have we been here? so pertinent to our region, are palpably raised in the artists’ photographic works. For some of the artists, they never came from - they were always here. Home as spirit. Home as land. For others their family was forced away from ancestral homelands and set adrift, hoping to find refuge and acceptance in lands new to them. Home as hope. Photographs of home past carried forward into new homes, reveal photography’s paradoxical relationship with time. Home as return. Many of us within our region draw from multiple bloodlines. Home as heritage.

In other artists work, the disquiet of the suburban home where ‘all is well’ slowly dissipates into states of angst, into the DNA of our suburban dream. Houses lit up like cruise ships, houses constructed from memory. Doorsteps from which every one has departed, doorsteps at which no one can arrive. It is a significant human experience to know home, and these artists powerfully suggest that home is not a fixed experience. Rather home is a shape shifter revealed through time, culture, and politics. Simone Douglas, Curator, ‘Home’ Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Silo 6 Silo Park, Wynyard Qtr, Opens 6pm on Thursday 2 June, Hours 10.30am – 4.30pm daily, 09 307 7055, photographyfestival.org.nz

The Auckland Festival of Photography 2016 features the 6th Annual Commission, this year presented by Sacred Hill. Each year, an Auckland-based photographer is commissioned to create a new body of work for exhibition during the Festival. The commission provides an opportunity to support and promote an Auckland photographer as well as create a cultural and artistic asset for present and future Auckland audiences to enjoy. This year’s commissioned artist is Russ Flatt.

Kia whakatomuri te haere whakamua. I walk backwards into the future with my eyes fixed on the past. Russ Flatt’s carefully staged photographs utilise different genres, modes and points of view in order to recover and reconstruct memories and past events. His work addresses notions of identity by looking towards a reimagined past in order to recognise the present. Russ Flatt graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in 2013 from Auckland University’s Elam School of Fine Arts. His work is held in collections including Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, the James Wallace Arts Trust, Auckland Council and the University of Auckland. Other shortlisted artists this year were Solomon Mortimer and Helen Clegg.

Ian Strange, Shan Turner-Carroll, Lin & Lam, Arthur Ou, Anna Carey, Shoufay Derz. Curated by Simone Douglas.

Ian Strange, Burn Series – Burn series is a part of a larger body of work entitled SUBURBAN. Over two years Strange worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire to create, photograph and film site-specific interventions incorporating suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through photographic documentation forms the basis of this work. The most dramatic of all his approaches, however, is the Burn Series in which, with the involvement of the fire department in Ohio, houses were set alight and burned to the ground in an act of symbolic requital; the surviving record

of their existence being Strange’s art-directed photographic documentation. Strange’s photographs and videos challenge the idea of the family home as a place of warmth and safety by simultaneously elevating and destroying it, both literally and figuratively. In doing so, New York based Strange reveals his own antithetical relationship with the suburbs and invites us to explore our own response to them. Excerpt from - Ian Strange: SUBURBAN - By David Hurlston and Polly Smith (Originally published by the National Gallery of Victoria, July 24th 2013)


Home

Shan Turner-Carroll – ‘The Cubby Cave’ is inspired by the notion of an archetypal journey and the liminal space of transition. This body of work exists between the real and imagined. The photographs document both ritual and performance, creating representational symbols influenced by rites of passage. The costumes are made of both found and constructed materials. The traveling jacket is designed to be like a portable shelter. Symbolic gifts are sown onto the leaf material - work as talismans of protection, vertical gardens that provide food along the path, and a portable shrine to be accessed at any stage. One can search the world looking for contentment, for home, but once you realize that your true home is within yourself within the true nature of your mind, you are not bound by one place, you can take that anywhere you are… Meditation is the act of bringing the mind home. The Cubby Cave is an extension of the idea of home, shelter, and sacred space. Anna Carey conflates the real with memory and imagination. She constructs miniature models of vernacular architecture, documenting these models with the camera and then displaying the resulting photographs. The camera lens magnifies the model with all its imperfections and reminds the viewer that the photograph has been constructed with a miniature-materialized object. In turn this creates a disorientating experience for the viewers and opens up a space for one to pause and reflect on their own experiences embedded within the familiar spaces. Arthur Ou writes, “Through photography, one of the recent concerns in my practice deals with notions of the landscape as an artificial phenomenon. The urge to photograph the sea grew stronger after I relocated to NY from California some time ago, which also arise from the desire to picture an entity that I consider a connecting force between the two places — California and Taiwan — that I consider my “homelands.” These photographs also extend to the interest in some of the specific sites where key modernist photographic works were made, though at the same time wanting to disrupt the clichéd beauty that comes from representing the sea. The black calligraphic areas in these seascapes are deliberate disruptions that become decorative elements that directly obstruct an illusionistic view of the photographed scenes.” Shoufay Derz, a Sydney based artist of both German and Taiwanese ancestry, portrays landscapes through the thematic lens of home, inheritance, and lineage. From the desert valleys of the Taklamakan desert in China, the Badlands of the Taiwan, and the Australian bush, Derz mines the landscape for a connection to heritage. For Derz, ‘home’ is an unfixed idea, made up of shifting

layers of the known and familiar coalescing with a dark substratum of fissures, erosion and voids. Land is imagined as layers of time, and history as the indeterminate embedded in the visible world forming the bedrock of our identity and sense of ‘home’.

Sim Chi Yin — The Rat Tribe

2 – 20 June

The Rat Tribe 1 - Sim Chi Yin / VII.

Lin + Lam’s projects raise questions about how people’s pasts, futures, and presents can be preserved in the face of involuntary migration. They have examined the physical and psychic remainders of what came to be known as the Vietnamese refugee crisis. Their work tackles the complexities of the stateless person’s predicament when she is no longer viewed as a political refugee by international bodies experiencing humanitarian fatigue. Revoked of refugee status and re-categorized as “economic” migrant, the stateless person is homeless, left in limbo without the legal protections and social bonds of citizenship.

Faced with sky-high property prices, living underground is often the only option for the legion of low-waged migrant workers, who make up one-third of Beijing’s estimated 20 million people. In mid-December of 2010, the authorities issued new regulations contradicting earlier ones, effectively stopping basement leases from being renewed. These images tell the broader story of a China on the move, of the world’s biggest tide of migration, and of a generational shift to an urban income and lifestyle. Curious about this underworld, Sim Chi Yin started photographing it in 2010. If she went into it hoping to document the tough and musty lives these migrants lead – waiters, karaoke hostesses, hairdressers, chefs, security guards, domestic workers and kitchen helpers, these basement dwellers are the backbone of Beijing’s service industry. But they have been unkindly dubbed the “rat tribe” for making a home in Beijing’s 6,000 basements and air raid shelters — about one-third of the city’s underground space. Sim Chi Yin is a photographer based in Beijing, a member of VII Photo Agency. Chi Yin was a finalist in W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography 2013, on the British Journal of Photography’s Ones to Watch 2014 and the PDN30 – Photo District News’ top 30 emerging photographers 2013. More recently Chi Yin was a judge on World Press Photo 2016. She works on projects on social issues in the region, and since going freelance in 2011 has also done photo, multimedia and video commissions for TIME, the New York Times, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Le Monde, Newsweek, Vogue USA, GQ France, Financial Times Weekend Magazine, New York Times Sunday Magazine and Stern.

Janet Lilo — Status Update

Janet Lilo, Steven Seagull (Instagram post), 2016

Janet Lilo uses video, photography and installation to document the contemporary moment. Her exhibition Status Update revisits the concerns that have driven her practice to date. The title is a phrase cribbed from Facebook to refer to both Janet’s interest in re-focusing attention on mainstream realities that are often overlooked, as well the function of a survey exhibition as validation (and elevation) of an artist’s practice. Status Update, however, is not a traditional survey. Rather than simply showing older works, Janet will be re-making, re-conceptualising and re-mixing past projects to create new, large-scale installations across three gallery spaces in Te Uru. Opens 4pm on 28 May.

back to the future

“I still get lost in the streets and waterways where my father lives. Barbados Key, Maldives Way, Seychelles Drive, Mauritius, Bermuda, Malibu, Monaco, Sorrento, Havana. Everything here is younger than I.” Photography does not depict truth, it is with this critical eye, practiced at mistrusting photographs – that the view of the landscape is questioned. Water is transformative and manipulative, temporal and mobile, with the power to transform a place quickly at any moment. Kate van der Drift uses its materiality and multivalence as a metaphor within Eventual Efflorescence - her most recent study of place.

MC Alasdair Foster (Australia) leads a talented, passionate panel through the challenges, changes ahead, both here in Auckland and internationally. Photography education today is experiencing a period of rapid change, adapting to encompass new technologies, while the ubiquity of cellphone cameras is believed by some to have democratised image-making. What is the future of photographic education in the academy? Are we in a post-medium era? Leading educators internationally will take part in this debate and will be exploring the questions posed by Alasdair, whose doctoral research explored the democratisation of the arts and the failure of arts education.

Alasdair Foster — Disquietude: Landscape & the Australian Imagination Sun 5 June, 1pm Alasdair Foster, is an international curator, art consultant, former director Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney. He is a regular keynote speaker, portfolio reviewer and has curated internationally acclaimed photography exhibitions in Festivals all over the world. He is based in Sydney. Many Australians have an edgy relationship to the land, with two-thirds of the population living in the seven largest cities, all situated by the sea. The continental centre is vast and harsh. It is perhaps because of this disquietude that, while Australia has some of the most dramatic scenery on the planet, landscape is rarely the subject of art photography. At least not directly… This presentation begins by looking at the few successful contemporary Australian art photographers of the natural landscape before moving into the bustling cities to experience an urban splendour and suburban domesticity that prove nonetheless to be tinged with unease. Against this background of a troubling reality, the presentation will go on to explore a growing interest among art photographers in annexing landscape to the realm of fantasy and creating whole new worlds of the imagination. The presentation will close by considering ‘the most popular landscape photograph in Australia’ … with revealing results. Alasdair Foster 2015 (portrait by Murray Fredericks).

Thanks to:

Assoc Professor Oh Soon-Hwa, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in an exclusive presenation on My Quiet Dream: A series consists of narrative portrait photographs. This series took place in and near a small Island in the Mekong Delta nicknamed “Taiwanese Island” where many young women have married foreigners such as Taiwanese or Korean men and left their homeland to get a better life and provide some financial support back home in order to maintain a “good daughter status”. The narrative is about these young women’s decisions about marriage and their dream to somewhat fit with some expectations on them under traditional Asian familial values based on a patriarchal family structure. The photographic essay explores the beauty and the serenity of the environment surrounding these women who are expected to leave behind what is part of their identity, which includes the landscapes, the climate, the language, the family, the friends, the traditions and the way of living, and build a new life where everything is foreign. It shows the high risks and sacrifices these young women are expected to bear. This project re-looks at women’s conditions and lives in our complex cultural, social, and religious system.

Peter Peryer

A curated selection of new and unseen works by PETER PERYER - one of New Zealand’s most renowned photographers with an exhibiting career reaching back to 1975. In 2014 he was the subject of a major public gallery solo exhibition “Peter Peryer: A Careful Eye” curated by The Dowse Art Museum. His work is held in major private and public collections throughout Australia and New Zealand. This much anticipated show will be his first solo exhibition in a commercial gallery in Auckland in ten years. Melanie Roger Gallery, 226 Jervois Rd, Herne Bay, Hrs Wed 11-5, Thu 11-4, Fri 11-5, Sat 11-3, 09 360 1151, melanierogergallery.com

Russ Flatt’s carefully staged photographic series, ‘Night Bus’, explores the emotionally and sexually-charged space between teenagehood and adulthood. By playing with notions of reflection and performance, and by re-creating and articulating moments from his youth, the artist attempts an understanding of his own identity and sexuality. ‘Night Bus’ takes you on a journey into Auckland’s nightlife at a time when to be under-age was an entry ticket rather than an obstacle.

The Camera is God (street portrait series) 2013, by award-winning Australian photographer Trent Parke features a series of anonymous portraits taken on the streets of Adelaide. For almost a year, Parke stood on the same street corner, at the same time of day, and captured images of the masses using a rapid shutter release. In executing the final prints, Parke isolates single figures and enlarges them to the point where the subject is unrecognisable. Parke is the only Australian photographer in the renowned Magnum Photo Agency and has received numerous awards including the inaugural Prudential Eye Award for Photography and the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography. Two Rooms, 16 Putiki Street, Newton, Opens 5pm, Fri 3 June, Hrs 11-5pm Tue-Fri, 11- 3pm Sat, 09 360 5900, tworooms.co.nz

Figuration: New forms in photography 24 May – 26 June

Bridget Reweti’s photographic and moving image practice explores the representation of New Zealand’s iconic landscapes by employing traditional photographic techniques to subvert the scenic view. Informed by customary knowledge of Māori names and narratives, she has critiqued perceptions of the landscape. In this solo exhibition of hand coloured photographs, Reweti comments on notions associated with tourism. Produced whilst participating in the 2016 Indigenous Visual and Digital Arts Residency at The Banaff Centre in Canada, these photographs question what it means to stay and make work in a place that is not your own. Exhibition celebration: Saturday 18 June, 11am Artist’s panel talk: Saturday 18 June, 1pm Corban Estate Arts Centre, 2 Mount Lebanon Lane, Henderson.10-4.30 daily, 09 838 4455, ceac.org.nz

STILL LIFE 1 June – 1 July

Pasture (diptych) 2015, silver gelatin fibre based print

New Zealand photographer working in Berlin, Conor Clarke was the recipient of the Auckland Council Artist Residency in 2015. Her residency was spent at Waitawa Regional Park, during which time Clarke produced a suite of site-specific photographs within the tradition of hand-printed black and white analogue photography. These tightly-cropped works question notions of beauty and the sublime by focussing on subjects, such as gorse, and vistas of human industry, specifically Kāramuramu Island quarry, which are typically deemed unattractive and unspectacular. This exhibition is supported by Auckland Council and Creative New Zealand. Two Rooms, 16 Putiki Street, Newton, Opens 5pm Fri 3 June, Hrs 11-5pm Tue-Fri, 11-3pm Sat, 09 360 5900, tworooms.co.nz

Nigel Swinn, The Rabbit in the Water, 2016

Conor Clarke

“This is a collection of images where someone’s or something’s actions have created a surreal still life. Whilst it seems a stretch to link a dog’s instinctive killing of a rabbit in New Zealand with the care and attention of a gardener preparing Versailles for winter, in both cases, the result is a strange and haunting thing of beauty. From finding a baby rabbit suspended gracefully in my pond; to walking into Versailles and seeing all the statues wrapped in readiness for the ravages of winter; to opening a box from a taxidermist and finding a Tui floating on it’s own cloud of cotton wool; these were all moments when I was struck with a life that has been stilled and a scene that was beautiful.” - Nigel Swinn FHE Galleries, 221 Ponsonby Rd.10-4 Mon, 10-5 Tue-Fri, 10-3 Sat, 11-2 Sun, 09 360 0293, fhegalleries.com

A collaboration of photographs by Haruhiko Sameshima and Bonsai by John Lyall. “Haruhiko took some photographs of my bonsai... They are serene formal portraits. When I look at my bonsai I see the faults, the branches I haven’t wired at the right angle, the trimming I need to do and the weeds. In Haru’s photographs they are timeless. These are young bonsai, I have been doing it for about fifteen years, so they are slim but have elegant trunk lines and beautiful pots.” John Lyall Whitespace Gallery, 12 Crummer Rd, Ponsonby, Opens 5pm Tue 31 May, Hrs Tue-Fri 11-5, Sat 11-4pm, whitespace.co.nz

“We passed the setting sun” 15 June – 15 July

Contemplations Of Place: Eight Decades On 11 – 29 June

Drawing the exhibition title from an Emily Dickinson poem that mediates upon Death’s leisurely, though inevitable, procession through time, Chris Corson-Scott captures places that carry quiet significance as historic sites. Revealing a history all but invisible except to the keen observer bearing witness, Corson-Scott draws out the impossibility of fully preserving the past. Producing evocative images that also speak to the essence of photography as a medium bound to the attempt to arrest the fleeting moment, Corson-Scott remains resolutely insistent on the use of analogue film and ‘old-fashioned’ 8×10 view-camera as critical to the aesthetic of his work. Trish Clark Gallery, 1 Bowen Ave, Opens 5.30pm Tue 14 June, Hrs 12- 6pm Mon-Fri, 124pm Sat, 09 3799 556, trishclark.co.nz

 what are photographers contemplating when picturing New Zealand landscape and the impact of man on the land; often it seems other places. These suites of photographs and the narratives contained within, their qualities of the bucolic and time stilled/stillness, reward contemplation. Aesthetically, when viewed together, the eight decade time-shift and our perceptions of the past, may collapse.

Observations of a Rural Nurse 15 May – 10 June

process 14 – 26 June

Sara McIntyre is a District Nurse and photographer in the King Country, New Zealand. She has been coming to the area since her family first arrived for a fishing trip at Kakahi about 1960. Four years ago McIntyre left neonatal intensive care nursing in Wellington, to live and work at the site of her childhood holidays. Her photographic exploration takes in the places and inhabitants of Kakahi and the sparsely populated surrounding towns; Manunui, Ohura, Ongarue, Piriaka, Owhango, Waimiha and Taumaranui. McIntyre has become familiar with her subjects in a personal and professional capacity and her observations have a familial prehistory. In 1972, her father, the well known New Zealand painter, Peter McIntyre, published Kakahi New Zealand, an account of a place he described as ‘woven into the fabric of my family life.’ Anna Miles Gallery, 10/30 Upper Queen St, Opens 3pm Sun 15 May, Hrs 11-3pm Thu-Sat, 09 368 5792, annamilesgallery.com

The Non-Living Agent Curated by Andrew Kennedy 11 June – 24 July

Bare Truth is a captivating collection of portraits of New Zealand men who are humble, courageous and vulnerable. Presented in monochrome to emphasize their shape and form, the simple background eliminates distractions so the viewer can focus on their body language and facial expression. Using soft, directional light and adopting a special post-processing technique enhances the men’s features, creating images that are edgy, raw and crisp. The Bare Truth portfolio was chosen to be exhibited at the 2016 Head On Photo Festival in Sydney and has won national and international awards. Artist talk: Sunday 12 June at 2pm Northart Gallery, Norman King Square, Ernie Mays Street, Northcote Shopping Centre, Opens 4pm, Sun 5 June, Hours 10-4pm daily

Can an image plane be traversed like the threshold of a building, moving from inside to outside and back again? And if so, what are the effects of this movement? Imagine a community where the surrounding architecture is not only made up of timber, glass, concrete etc. but, also made up of images. Bodies pushing at their edges, leaning on them, being shaped by them. Have we become so used to crossing the image plane that our bodies accept and absorb the shrapnel of this collision? The Non-Living Agent will present work that blurs the lines between image and presentness, focusing on the threshold of images and how crossing and touching this threshold might effect our everyday experiences.
