SCAPE Public Art in Christchurch will be celebrating their 20th anniversary and the presentation of works for the 2018 Season is going to be bigger and better than ever. A 5.5m tall sculpture by Tony Cragg has been announced as the first work, marking the first time a work of this scale by Cragg will be presented publically in New Zealand. The bronze sculpture will be installed at the Christ's College Quadrangle in the city centre for the duration of the SCAPE season (6 October - 17 November) and will remain there over Summer until January 2019.

Gow Langsford Gallery along with the SCAPE Public Art Trust and the Philipp Family Foundation has facilitated getting this magnificent work to Christchurch. Director Gary Langsford comments: “It is wonderful to have the opportunity to work with SCAPE in its 20th year. They’ve been pioneering and ambitious in bringing world-class public art to Christchurch [...] Our organisations have enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial relationship, and the 20th anniversary of SCAPE provided the perfect opportunity to bring a monumental work by Tony Cragg to New Zealand".

The Season will officially open on Saturday 6 October. Further artists are set to be announced over the coming months.

Installation view

Tony Cragg's exhibition at our Lorne St Gallery has been reviewed by John Hurrell for Eye Contact.

"Three of the four cast bronzes have a particular fluidity where the texture of the headlike form seems like liquid pouring over rocky or arboreal outcrops that are dramatically tilted at unusual angles. They look geological and eroded, and the facial profiles are not obvious. They take time to discover."

Read more on the Eye Contact site. The exhibition runs until 5th July 2018.

Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee to exhibit in Glassfever

Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee are to feature alongside an impressive collection of artists in the exhibition Glassfever: Contemporary Art in Glass, opening across four locations in the Netherlands on the 30th of April, running until the 25th of September, 2016.

"Glass is a versatile and complex material. It can reflect light and allow it to pass through simultaneously, it can be clear and opaque, fluid and solid. For many years, glass was only use in applied art. In glassware, jewellery and decorative objects. In autonomous modern art, glass was never considered to be a fully-fledged material like bronze, marble or steel. Not until the 1960s was glass used as a material in modern art without preconception or artistic reserve. Adriano Berengo was a pioneer in this development. For over twenty-five years, Studio Beregno has been modernizing the tradition of Murano glass art by working with renowned names and up-and-coming talent in international contemporary visual arts. The results of Berengo's passionate pioneering work are now on display as part of the GlassFever exhibition at four locations in Dordrecht."
