ALEXANDRA KENNEDY

Thursday - Saturday, 2-6pm

Opening Night: Thursday 5 October, 6-8 pm


Alexandra Kennedy has a practice based in premises which emerged with Conceptual Art in the 1960s and 70s. A process is often established for a work – or series of works – and the making represents an attempt to follow the ‘rules’ set out by the process. Realised work has a large element of chance, as these rules are subjected to interferences which occur as part of the making of a work. Colour is a central element, and again, initial rules about how colour will be utilised are often break down midway through the making of a work, as chance in mixing and in inclination as work progresses take over. 

Alexandra lives in Dunedin, New Zealand. She has an MFA in Painting and regularly exhibits internationally. Recent projects include curation of an exhibiton for Antwerp Art Weekend (May 2017) and a solo show with Abstract Projects, Paris, France (July 2017). She works at Dunedin School of Art where she is Postgraduate Coordinator and a Principal Lecturer.

ANIE NHEU


On Paper

5 - 28 October 2017
Thursday - Saturday, 2-6pm

Opening Night: Thursday 5 October, 6-8 pm

It was at school, year 11 in an introductory lesson to physics delivered by Mr. Cotton that started a small revolution in Anie’s mind. It was Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The example he gave was an image of a cup on a table: the cup is static, not because visibly the table is supporting it, but it is due to the force of the table exerting the same force on the cup as the force of the cup exerting on the table. This jolt of surprise, where the understanding of what is perceived does not equate to that which explains the physical manifestation, has made a mark on her.  

In Anie’s art practice, the unseen that brings about the visible has been a wonder, and source of exploration in her work. Translating this into visual practice, her investigation focuses on the condition of living with a body and its affects. With the body being both, a sensor and instrument of making sense, the happenings between the two become the seen and unseen for her investigation. In the last 2 years, she has included installation and negative space in her image making. They have become an integral part in the reading of her work. 

Anie was born in Taiwan, and grew up in East Timor and Dominican Republic. Recipient of  Australian Postgraduate Award, she completed MFA at CoFA, UNSW in 2007. She has been a finalist in various art prizes. In 2016 she did a residency in Youkobo Artspace at Suginami, Japan. She has exhibited in Beijing, Seoul and Suginami.
