House of Bats| Exhibition + Talk by Ben Paris

Tessa Laird

Fri. 5 December 2014 - Sun. 18 January 2015 | FREE
Opening 6pm Thurs. 4 December

Once upon a time bats numbered in the millions on these islands, however, introduced predators and diminishing habitats mean that most people don’t even know there are bats in Aotearoa today. A small colony of long-tail bats remains in the Waitakere ranges, and it is in honour of this tenacious group of flying mosquito eaters that Tessa Laird has created a house (or at least, a room) of bat related imagery. Working in both print and ceramics, Laird creates elements of an elaborate Victorian parlour—florid wallpaper and baroque candelabra—imagining that the house’s residents are bats.

Ben Paris on Bats: Sat. 6 December. 11am | FREE

'House of Bats' will be accompanied by a talk by Ben Paris, Senior Biodiversity Advisor for the Auckland Council, who has been working with Auckland's special population of long-tailed bats and is an expert in the native bat.

Serf Club KL| Exhibition

Sam Thomas

Fri. 5 December 2014 - Sun. 18 January 2015 | FREE
Opening 6pm Thurs. 4 December

Whilst in Kuala Lumpur on an artists residency at Shalini Ganendra Fine Art, Sam Thomas created a series of en plein air paintings at building sites and other locations. Kuala Lumpur is filled with construction sites for new malls and apartment blocks. The labourers working on these buildings are usually from neighbouring countries. They are flown in and live on the construction site for the duration of the project. Like an artist in residence they live where they work.

These works have been created with the support of the Asia New Zealand Foundation.
