Preserve, Renew, Invent [Light Bytes]
January 2008 at MIC Toi Rerehiko (Media and Interdisciplinary Arts Centre), Level 1/321, Karangahape Rd, Auckland, NZ (25 January – 8 March, 2008)
This exhibition is a local and international project that involves archiving and disseminating aphoristic texts in a range of public sites and media. A multi platform “art-in-a-suitcase”, its various components pack into a portable edition containing DVD components, an artists’ book of archival photography, and ceramic plates (this limited edition of ceramics is an inaugural edition for MIC, and reflects it’s name change from Moving Image Centre to Media and Interdisciplinary Arts Centre).
