The Wallace Arts Trust invite you to join us for the opening of our last opening in the main Pah Homestead galleries for 2015 - Elusive Earth: Refined Images of Antarctica.

Elusive Earth exhibition dates: 10 November to 24 January

Elusive Earth: Refined Images of Antarctica presents Antarctica as seen by seven contemporary New Zealand artists - Laurence Aberhart, Joyce Campbell, Phil Dadson, Megan Jenkinson, Jae Hoon Lee, Joseph Michael and Anne Noble.

The artists images, resulting from travels to the continent, are formed through the medium of photography or video coupled with sound. Six of the artists travelled with assistance from Antarctica New Zealand - Antarctic Arts Fellows under the Artists to Antarctica Programme and the Invited Artists Programme. More recently, Joseph Michael travelled independently in early 2015 with his own support crew, and backing from various bodies including the Wallace Arts Trust. Uniqueness of artistic expression means there is not a singular concern binding these artists’ work. Rather, as with our notion of Antarctica, there are associated narratives and correlates of ideas.

What does Antarctica mean to us? The artists in Elusive Earth do not provide clear answers but rather pose Antarctica as a point of enquiry. Their approach to the subject is disparate but collectively they can be regarded as artists-explorers – each mediating an experience of Antarctica. They have travelled and present samples, specimens, for engagement. These are refined, re-touched and re-treated visions, projections on the great white wall of abutting ice, a dream of something where the Earth itself remain elusive
