A Life Less Ordinary

ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

about-exhibition

DATES & TIMES

6 May - 2 July 2019

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Christchurch artist Julie Humby explores our fascination with cabinets of curiosity in her solo exhibition A Life Less Ordinary.

Born from research towards her Master of Media Arts, Humby is intrigued by the beauty of everyday objects in nature and the poetic potential in the ordinary.  The exhibition is comprised of various objects of naturalia, artificialia, exotica and mirabilia all presented in juxtaposition to one another.

Truth or Consequences

The five artists selected for the 2018 CIRCUIT artists’ film commissions all use the moving image to confront the complexity and fragility of reality. Their formal techniques and topical concerns are diverse, but they all share an interest in exploring how a documentary impulse can facilitate an encounter with our shared world.
