This May we have an exciting programme of events for the exhibition Pieces Spaces Species.

We start with Notes of Dispersal, a sign-up postal exchange on Thursday, May 18. Following that, on Tuesday, May 23 don’t miss out on Working Bees, a conversation between Jenny Jandt and Taarn Scott. To conclude the exhibition, on Saturday May 27 we will be hosting Some Meetings & Ends, an artist talk and guided walk with Yana Dombrowsky-M'Baye, Lucy Hill and Taarn Scott.

Yana Dombrowsky-M’Baye

Yana Dombrowsky-M’Baye is an artist and spatial designer of Senegalese/European descent based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Dombrowsky-M'Baye’s practice is a poetic and collaborative inquiry into material and immaterial temporalities across human and more-than-human scales. Through iterative and ritualistic processes, these temporalities are speculated upon through site-responsive installation, artefacts, gifting and trace documentation, piecing together fragments of genealogical and geological stories.

Lucy Hill

Lucy Hill studied at Dunedin School of Art/Te Pūkenga, graduating in 2022. Hill’s work explores the day-to-day environments around her home in Ōtepoti through sculpture, ceramics and walking. Her SITE 2022 installation Creatures of Earth was an immersive collaboration between hand and clay evoking the relationships between human and non-human worlds.

Taarn Scott

Taarn Scott is an artist from Ōtepoti who studied at Elam School of Fine Arts. Scott is interested in the tactile and the poetic. Recent exhibitions include the group show (Grow)home, Anteroom, Ōtepoti and Ngā Hau o Tāwhirimātea with Hana Pera Aoake and Riki Gooch, Enjoy, Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Scott has also collaborated on a series of exhibitions with Aoake and Wesley John Fourie: Invasive Weeds (or I wish I could give you the world, but I was only given mud, rot, and the bones of a half-eaten fish), The Physics Room, Ōtautahi; The Future of Dirt, RM Gallery, Tāmaki Makaurau; and An Endless Sky of Honey, Meanwhile, Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
