Blue Lies Celebration Opening


"The wind is writing what it knows in lines upon the water." What image does this statement evoke in the mind of the reader? How might it be represented visually? The ‘Blue Lies’ exhibition by Amanda Hewlett and Cathy Carter seeks to address those questions. Using a series of statements about water, Hewlett and Carter have independently created a series of works that express and offer their interpretation of what the writer had in mind. Does it match yours? Also showing 'Fluid Realms': This exhibition features nine large scale photographs that explore bodies of water as physical, cultural, social and unique environmental ‘landscapes’. Carters practice investigates our often complex psychological relationship to water through different perspectives and geographical locations to create new ways of experiencing these spaces. And 'Homage': '...lest we resemble sea-birds which perch upon a rock, when the tide flows, the rock is covered by the sea, and the birds take flight, for they have no resting place'. These words written by Wiremu Kingi Te Rangitake over 150 years ago, apply today to people separated from their turangawaewae. Hewlett's exhibition 'Homage' is inspired by these words.
