Forthcoming and Current Exhibitions

Between the Worlds 

billadonna and Elizabeth Barton

Artspost, 120 Victoria Street, Hamilton, New Zealand.

22 December 2017 - 22 January 2018: Preview 5:30 pm 21 December 2017

|

Between the Worlds explores the grey zone that surrounds transition areas - between countries, cultures, genders, life and death.

 

For billadonna, a child of Germany post World War II, full of curiosity that ultimately led to immigration, birds and bird creatures have become synonymous with a life in transit.

In between the world you encounter characters whose natural habitat is the transitional grey zone. The beaked creatures, referencing plague doctors, bird women, flightless birds, winged minds. Fun, weird, colourful, larget than life - slightly disturbing.

They are not at home in this world or any other, but confidently found a sense of belonging in their kinship.

 

Elizabeth Barton has long felt a kinship with the mysterious in VitNG-IV-Vignettenature, with dreams, alchemy and the mystical, which forms much of the subject matter in this exhibition. A fascination with prophecy, visions and visitations from the Other World will feature, drawn from Maori mythology, early New Zealand history and allusions to Egyptian myth. Expect a playful discursion with visual puns, as part of an indeterminate reality.
