Ms. Interpreted presents:
‘POINT OF HUE’ – Photography Exhibition
Opening preview @ LOT23: Friday Sep 2nd 6pm
Discussion and Screening @ LOT23: Saturday Sep 3rd, 1pm
‘Point of Hue’ is the first of what we hope to be many, all-women artists exhibition under the curatorial umbrella Ms. Interpreted.
The name for the exhibition ‘Point of Hue’ is inspired by 11 years old, Alfred MacKenzie, who is striving for a better world beyond the patriarchy and the white male privileges and supremacy. He points out that our world is not post gendered and that perhaps we are not just one human family. ‘After all these years of men before women attitude….hue is simply the first syllable for human, just like man is the second. Future will now be free to all genders.’These words are reminding us not just that the children are our future but that history is itself subject to change by individuals and their voices.
The future as we know it remains to be negotiated and we see that negotiation taking place in this exhibition through the artists’ point of view:
Rebecca Ann Hobbs http://
Australian born, Rebecca Ann Hobbs is an Auckland based artist who works with new media to create video and still images that mostly celebrate dynamic bodies and their relationships with specific sites.
Caryline Boreham http://
Caryline Boreham’s photography focuses on society’s hidden spaces, familiar yet other, inscribed with both tacit and explicit cultural information. In her work, there is a tension between the physicality of the spaces and the intangible laws that govern our perception of them.
Suzanne Tamaki https://
Suzanne Tamaki is a New Zealand fibre-based artist of Te Arawa, Ngāti aniapoto and Tūhoe descent. She operates under the label Native Sista and was one of the founding members of the Pacific Sisters. Informed by indigenous concerns of Aotearoa, New Zealand, Tamaki’s jewellery, fashion and photography portrays a reclamation of colonised spaces.
Karen Inderbitzen Waller & Delphine Avril Planqueel http://
Karen Inderbitzen-Waller and Delphine Avril Planqueel are Fashion and Art photographers and stylists born in New Zealand and France respectively. Residing and shooting between Paris and New Zealand, their photographs are broad in subject and rich in reference, often pointing to films and paintings from an array of different genre and periods. This conceptual depth and blurring of boundaries allows their work to sit comfortably in both the fashion and art worlds.
