Unbearably CloseAshleigh Tuck
Unbearably Close is an exploration of breath, materiality and the natural/unnatural divide. An invitation to engage with the man-made, the soft, puckered and malleable. Forms in flux, pushing and folding against the walls, competing for space, then, giving over to gravity and sleep. Human determination despite our fleshy fragility might be recognised in this unnatural and imperishable plastic gaining stretch marks and split seam orifices. It’s close but also “other”.
between two endsAngel C Fitzgerald and Zac Small
between two ends is a new collaborative exhibition by Angel C Fitzgerald and Zac Small opening August 10th at 6pm at RM Gallery. The show comprises sculptural, photographic and video elements with a two channel film starring Bebe Gall.
Angel C Fitzgerald is an artist, writer and filmmaker living in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington. Through their work they seek to articulate personal subject matter, with recent films focusing on love, heartbreak, friendship and transition. They’re invested in the emotional dimensions of cinema with a focus on poetic and visual storytelling. Their work has been exhibited at Artspace Aotearoa, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland; play_station, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington; Window Gallery, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland; Te Tuhi, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland; and Blue Oyster Project Space, Ōtepoti Dunedin. Angel is also a facilitator at play_station space.
Zac Small is an artist currently living in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Within his largely sculpture-based practice he explores material systems and how they speak to the world around them. Through the detailed manipulation of surfaces, objects and spaces he questions ideas of authenticity, meaning and relation.
Bebe Gall is a textile designer living in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Her material research focuses on the lost and complex relationships between our bodies, material and nature, through producing and manipulating materials that invoke conversation and physical interaction between beings.
