We have just returned from a few days in Melbourne where we worked with gallery directors to arrange two major solo exhibitions of the Watershed project. The first will be at the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, the leading sculpture centre in Australia . It will include land art photographs, videos and sculptures and will run from 16th February – 17 April 2014.
The second exhibition will be at Mossgreen Gallery’s newly developed building in Armadale during April 2014 where selected large prints from the Watershed project will be exhibited for sale.
This new body of work examines the relationship between human systems and the global water cycle that supports them. It is the most ambitious body of work yet so we are excited that it will be exhibited internationally as well as at galleries to be announced in New Zealand.
Sincere thanks to the Myer Foundation for sponsoring the McClelland Gallery exhibition. Thanks also to the Kenneth Myer Artists and Writers Alpine Retreat programme for providing the opportunity for us to work from the Whare Kea Chalet near Mt Aspiring in the New Zealand alps. Spending two extended periods alone up high in winter and summer conditions was a profound experience that is reflected in the works produced.
