The artworks range from sculpture to video to cross stitch and are as diverse in format as they are in the ideas that inform them.
Works include a Morris Minor in the process of an unusual restoration, paintings inspired by the story of Moby Dick, a self sufficient garden, large scale video work and an old clinker converted into a space craft about to attempt an impossible flight.
A large disused factory space supplies the perfect site for a show. Over the four days of the exhibition, The Print Factory site will play multiple roles as gallery, workshop, test space, and laboratory. Some artworks will respond directly to this environment, while others will create environments within it.
Place In Space is an excellent chance to see young artists work in their complete or incomplete stages that outlines a trajectory but not the destination.
Place in Space opens on Wednesday 11th of November, from 6pm to 8pm, with beer sponsored by Tuatara Brewery and featuring a live performance by Wellington based kazaamBLAM!
Featured Artists: Catherine Caudwell, Hannah Edmunds, Andrew Ivory, Shane McGrath Christina Oldfield, Douglas Stichbury*, Mike Ting, Johnathon Titheridge and Samantha Wallis.
