Exhibition preview at the Blue Oyster Tuesday 15 May 2012, at 5.30pm
Exhibition runs Wednesday 16 May - Saturday 19 June 2012

The Blue Oyster is proud to announce the construction of a new gallery space that will exhibit audiovisual work. The addition to our gallery is intended to provide a space tailored to work that due to its aural or luminous characteristics does not fit in the diffuse white cube of the Blue Oyster. To celebrate the opening of the A / V Gallery we have invited a selection of artists whose work we think will get the best from the space. Each work will be played for a week at a time with changeover on Saturdays throughout the five week rotation.

Week one: Alex Porter: 'N or Nor W'
Largely drawn from autobiographical references 'N or Nor W' is a lyrical expression of inner and outer landscapes that centres around the study of the infamous Canterbury wind. The title and certain elements of the short film pay homage to pioneering New Zealand filmmaker Len Lye’s 'N or Nor W' (1936) as well as non-industrial and surrealist cinematography. The film was originally created for a ‘Cinebooth’ - a small theatre for one - and this re-exhibition seeks to place the film in a similar booth-like environment. Porter graduated from Ilam School of Fine Arts with an MFA in 2011.

Week two (22-26 May): Rosie Rowe: 'Concepcion'
Week three (29 May - 2 June): Alexandra Savtchenko-Belskaia: 'the dissolution of the photographic image / bodies in space a slideshow (pedagogical tool / learning while teaching)'
Week four (5 - 9 June): Ted Whitaker: 'Untitled New Work'
Week five (12 - 16 June): 'Lolly Scramble'
