Curated by Sophie Thorn The buildings notice me is a group show presenting works that invite us to think about the reciprocal relationship between our built environment and lived experience. As is fitting for the University environment several of the works draw specifically on the pūrākau, me ngā kete o te wānanga, the obtaining of the three baskets of knowledge, others meditate on what it is a space might ask of us, or in the case of the ceramics extracted from the Karori Teachers College, some hold the memory of a building within them.

Soft, sonic, and ceramic, this eclectic grouping features a new large-scale fabric work by Megan Brady and sonic installation by Jim Murphy, existing work by John Harris & Steven Junil Park, Brook Konia, and Mataaho Collective, and reconfigured ceramic pieces originally made for the Karori Teachers College by Doreen Blumhardt and Roy Cowan.

The buildings notice me is staged concurrently with the exhibition Duncan Winder: architectural photographs.
