Backyard Cabbage tree,
City night sky grey,
Cold full moon,
Heavy Duty 28:57 Zon Sakai
In the darkness of the early morning, it seems that there is a me who has just come from a dream, looking at the other me, that is always still. Isn’t it because of the darkness that they can meet?
TuiTui art space is pleased to present “Backyard Cabbage tree, City night sky grey, Clouds clear, Cold full moon, Shines through”, featuring work by Zon Sakai, Phil Dadson, Yvonne Shaw, Pascal Harris, Frankie Chu, abnumeral, Kirsten Dryburgh, Qingyang, Toru Harada, Keiichiro Terae and Ryan Sun. This is a joint exhibition by New Zealand and Japanese artists. Through their works, we see what Rebecca Solnit describes:
“I am, we each are, the inmost of an endless series of Russian dolls; you who read are now encased within a layer I built for you, or perhaps my stories are now inside you. “We live as literally as that inside each other’s thoughts and work, in this world that is being made all the time, by all of us, out of beliefs and acts, information and materials. Even in the wilderness your ideas of what is beautiful, what matters, and what constitutes pleasure shape your journey there as much as do your shoes and map also made by others.”Faraway Nearby, Solnit, 191
Time as we usually know it has no meaning when these artists examine the infinite possibilities of a living self-consciousness. They recognise the inseparable relationship between impermanence and constancy.
