28 September – 21 October
Opening Wednesday 27 September, 5.30pm
– A show about earth, flames, pottery and your location
‘Terrestrials’ takes locality as a starting point for activity, looking at the formation of culture through pottery in Aotearoa New Zealand. Responding to traditional techniques, this solo exhibition by Dave Marshall encompasses sculptural responses to wood firing, the gathering of clay and other materials from local sites, and the collective conditions of labour. ‘Terrestrials’ considers the kinds of knowledge and encounters that emerge when taking the dirt road.
