Scape Public Art invites you to a new pop-up gallery in The Arts Centre Old Registry Building, showcasing innovative artworks from two renowned digital artists for a limited time.
Hye Rim Lee is an intermedia artist currently based in Auckland and frequently working in Seoul and New York. She works across digital, sculptural and performance platforms, particularly specialising in 3D animation and other computer-generated imagery. She has produced her latest 3D animation artwork, White Rose, as part of SCAPE Public Art Season 2022.
White Rose features a sprawling digital dreamscape where Hye Rim Lee’s long-time protagonist TOKI floats and spins through hyper-coloured imaginary worlds as she tries to escape the trauma of death and lost love on a journey to find peace. Also on display in the gallery are limited edition digital photographic prints in the White Rose series.
Young-hae Chang Heavy Industries is an art collective working out of Seoul, Korea. Made up of Young-Hae Chang, a Korean artist and translator, and Marc Voge, an American poet, the collective has made a signature style out of animating minimalist original texts to music, presented using accessible, low-cost software.
The struggle continues and change your career! are young-hae chang heavy industries’ contribution to this year’s SCAPE Public Art season. Both works poetically explore the possibility of personal agency and fulfilment in a world where systemic forces, particularly late-stage capitalism, seem to stifle and stunt interpersonal connection and the pursuit of love.
Visit the pop-up gallery to view these works between 11am and 3pm, Wednesday to Saturday until Friday 16 December.
Old Registry Building, The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, corner Worcester Boulevard and Montreal Street.
