Pauline Rhodes: In-Between
Showing at the McDougall Contemporary Art Annex
3 December 1999 until 16 January 2000
Pauline Rhodes, one of New Zealands most innovative artists, will be exhibiting a site-specific art installation in the McDougall Contemporary Art Annex. Rhodes, an internationally renowned artist, has been working at the forefront of experimental art since her graduation from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts in 1974. In-Between is a culmination of her recent artistic practice and is a unique exhibition developed specifically for the Contemporary Art Annex space.
In-Between will continue to explore Rhodes themes of the vulnerability and interaction of materials and the environment as well as investigating the temporary nature of the moment and the fragility of time. Celebrating chaos as a way of experiencing life is a motivating force behind In-Between.
Made out of a mixture of marble, cardboard, wire, cloth and slide projections, Pauline Rhodes requires a willingness to accept and explore the difficult and unruly in an invigorating mix of the rational and irrational. The challenge of Rhodes work has always been in its deliberate navigation around definitions and categories; between sculpture and photography; installation and performance; architecture and landscape; body and mind.
In-Between has been developed exclusively for the McDougall Contemporary Art Annex and will never be exhibited at any other time or venue. Come and see this distinctive work created by one of New Zealands special artistic talents.
