Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free

For this new exhibition Henry responds to the architecture of the galleries in which his work is displayed. Matt Henry grew up in New Plymouth and knows the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery intimately. Now, following major renovations and the addition of the Len Lye Centre, Henry is rediscovering the spaces that were once so familiar to him.

Henry’s spatial interventions take form in paintings that are installed in an unconventional manner, often embedded into the gallery walls or protruding into space. For 'Long Division' these minimalist interruptions have been designed and installed according to the artist’s close studies of the exhibition spaces and how we navigate them.
