Te Uru Gallery.  3 October – 29 November 2020




“The gallery itself is periodically flanked by two minders, each of whom sit atop elevated chairs, reminiscent of an umpire or lifeguard. Their role is mute, watchful. As you walk across the gallery floor, a sensor is tripped, a tennis ball shoots in your direction, ricochets off the back wall and rolls along the gallery floor. After 15 shots, the attendants descend to the floor, refill the machines and the action resumes. Are these shots in anger? Is it some sort of game? If so, what are the rules? What has it got to do with you and me?”

Excerpt from Mobilise,  an essay by Mark Willson in response to the show.

Work in progress: Thrown, 2020.

The exhibition also includes Charlton’s recent video work Catch 32 Bit, and a new sculpture, Deuce, both further questioning the nature of art objects. Deuce is a 3D printed action-based form created from gestures made with virtual reality modelling, a technique that we’ll explore in an upcoming workshop – more details here.
