Join Whitespace Contemporary Art for the openings of Garry Currin: Screenplay and Rebecca Swan: Notice What You Worship.


Currin's landscapes are not allegories conveying meaning through symbolic representation, nor do they seek to imitate reality. Rather they employ, in the fashion of lyrical abstraction, the emotive and expressive qualities of colour, shape and brushwork to capture first the artist's feelings, and subsequently the viewer's.

Presenting Rebecca Swan's latest video works that she made during her Fulbright-Wallace Arts Residency in San Francisco. She has filmed in the Redwood forests of California and in the forests of Aotearoa exploring interconnection of all life in the face of climate change.

Rebecca Swan is an interdisciplinary artist who works predominantly with photography and video. Her work is personal in nature, drawing on her own experience and contextualising that within a social and cultural framework. Her work has engaged with a wide range of issues, from cancer, sexual orientation, gender diversity and spirituality.

Part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2019.
