The DIASPORADIC679 T-shirt

This is one very sexy T-shirt! It features a logo / coat of arms developed by graphic artist, Nicole Lim, based on a painting by Luisa Tora. It was created for the exhibition diasporadic679 – an exhibition that takes the form of posters installed in shop windows in Otahuhu, South Auckland. Check the blog for more information:

The diasporadic679 T-shirt is beautifully printed by South Auckland’s excellent PopoHardWear – the logo is gold, large-scale and fabulous. The T-shirts support the exhibition project costs and are only NZD40.

Please contact Nicole Lim at Fresh Gallery Otara for sales enquiries or drop in between 10am – 5pm, Tuesday – Friday; 8am – 2pm, Saturdays.

MUD at Fresh Gallery Otara

Wellington-based computer programmer and artist, Douglas Bagnall is currently showing at Fresh Gallery Otara in South Auckland. MUD is a 2-channel video installation in a darkened room.

It’s a trip.

With almost 3000 characters, the work includes imagery of women and men, fish and other sea creatures, birds, riots, satellites, planes, worms… nuns, old Hollywood movie stars… and much, much more! No two moments are the same; the work is a six week epic!

In the room, the projections are on opposite walls. There’s a bench seat in the middle to sit and be surrounded by the work. It has been hugely popular with Fresh Gallery Otara’s significant youth audience.

It’s a quiet, calming experience to sit with this work.

MUD is proudly part of the 2011 Southside Arts Festival (14 October – 6 November) and runs until Saturday 26 November.
