Perfumes, vaporisers and de-humidifiers form the base of 2010/2011 New Zealand Artist in Residence Dane Mitchell’s Radiant Matter Part 1. Engaging with the notion of the ‘vaporous’, a transitional and ephemeral state between matter and gas that teeters on invisibility, the artist explores elements that waver between gas, liquid and solid forms.

Working with a glass-blower in Wellington and a perfumer in Spain, Mitchell developed a new scent, that of rain. Expanding in the air and filling space, perfume dwells on thresholds of physicality, tangibility and dimensionality. Mitchell describes perfume as ‘a cognitive thought-object that takes shape in the brain’. Radiant Matter Part 1 is the first in a series of three exhibitions that share similar conceptual and artistic concerns: Part 2 is at Dunedin Public Art Gallery (May 2011) and Part 3 is at Artspace, Auckland (July 2011).

Curated by Mercedes Vicente .

The Artist in Residence Programme is supported by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa and is a partnership between the Gallery and the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT).
