Atmospheric abstract paintings, drawings, photographs and moving-image soundscapes by Dunedin-based artist Kim Pieters feature in the latest exhibition at the Adam Art Gallery, 27 May - 21 September.

The exhibition surveys seven years of the artist’s output, from 2007 to the present, offering a concentrated insight into the range of works she has been making in and from her inner harbour studio in central Dunedin.

‘What is a life?’ will be launched with a unique performance by Eye, a trio of experimental musicians—Peter Stapleton, Peter Porteous and Jon Chapman—all with long histories of involvement in New Zealand underground music. They perform improvised psychedelic drones created with drums, guitar, analogue and digital electronics, shortwave radio, field recordings and Tibetan bells, which will be accompanied by Pieters’ projected film.

Pieters’ exhibition is accompanied by Reload: Kirk Gallery Series 2014, three one-work moving image installations by Shannon Te Ao, Hito Steyerl, and Eddie Clemens.

The Adam Art Gallery is open Tuesdays-Sundays, 11am-5pm, Free entry
