The Lab | Project 4 | 2-21 July
AUT University

5th Auckland Triennial
Auckland Art Gallery

a series of events;  21 days/  80 participants/  34 projects


Transforming Topographies is envisaged as a space of mergence, debate and negotiation. A space continuously dismantled, repositioned and energised by groups and individuals in conversation within a fluid and open state of oscillation. As a group of thinkers, collaborators, makers and designers we intend to rethink the role of 'the social' and 'the public' as real spaces of continuous exchange and encounter that engenders our imagination and community values.

In assembling the schedule of events for Transforming Topographies, the Project Leaders have developed a curatorial strategy, a diagrammatic system for grouping the projects; rocks, mist, firecrackers - designed to create a shifting platform of events and activity within The Lab. Rocks are the large-scale installation/ time-based projects that run for significant lengths of time, Mist are projects that occupy The Lab for short time frames or merge in and out of the space, and Firecrackers are one-off, one-day or pop-up events, often performative in nature. The aim is that the rocks, mist and firecrackers will merge and relate in interesting and unexpected forms.

Project Leaders: Elvon Young, Emily O'Hara, Lars Jerlach, Monique Redmond
