Paulnache Upstairs 89 Grey Street

'All I want is 20-20 vision / A total portrait with no omissions' - Blondie, 'Picture This', Parallel Lines LP, 1978

Parallel Lines brings together the seemingly disparate works of artists represented by Paulnache in Gisborne, New Zealand. The installation of artworks create a visual representation of timelines, slipstreams, jet-steams, tracks and paths alluding to the variable ways that artists interact visually, conceptually, locally and globally. Much like Jorge Luis Borges's seminal short story The Garden of Forking Paths, where a multiplicity of narratives run together to create a hypertext structure, Parallel Lines traces multiple narratives around the perimeter of the gallery walls and in turn creates a wider narrative pursuing concepts of glocalization - a newly coined term, blending globalization and localization referring to the concept of individual, group organization, product or services that reflect not only global standards but also local aspects. The artists represented in the exhibition and by Paulnache act on this premise of glocalization with artists living throughout New Zealand and abroad in Berlin, Melbourne, Las Vegas, Manila and Mumbai, but all returning to the provincial East Coast city of Gisborne in New Zealand to test and trial their art in the context of Paulnache.

The exhibition features artists Evan Woodruffe, Star Gossage, Matt Summers, Justin Jade Morgan, Brian Campbell, Matt Arbuckle, Scott Gardiner, Valerie Bos, Jevijoe Vitug, Rob McLeod, Ben Pearce, Ria Camp, Sanjay Theodore, Sam Kiyoumarsi, Clive Kelly, John Pule, John Walsh, Arie Hellendoorn, Geoff Tune, Bill Riley, Dion Hitchens, James Ormsby and Matthew Couper.
