Like Len Lye, digital artist Gregory Bennett is interested in bodily kinesthetics and patterns of movement, often influenced by music and sound.

Bennett, who will discuss the theories of sound and motion in own his work, completed a MFA at Elam in 2004 and is now a senior lecturer at AUT.

‘Art that Moves’, the present exhibition of Lye’s films and sculptures, is the first at a public gallery in Auckland since 1980.

Len Lye (1901-1980) is one of the most original artists to have emerged from New Zealand.

The exhibition explores Lye’s intense engagement with what he called the ‘magical mystery’ of motion. In addition to films and kinetic sculptures, there are paintings and photograms to represent other areas of his work and to illustrate the implied movement in his static images.

'Art that Moves' The work of Len Lye, is on display from 27 November 2009 - 6 February 2010.

The exhibition is linked with the publication of two new books: Art that Moves: The Work of Len Lye by Roger Horrocks (AUP), and Body English: Texts and Doodles by Len Lye (Holloway Press).
