SRIWHANA SPONG - INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY EXHIBITION  

Bach Residency recipient Sriwhana Spong began her residency in July, culminating in new work including the film Mother's Tongue, the result of a collaborative process that required the knowledge of poets, scientists, film and sound artists, including local filmmaker Ivette Spradlin and artist Ricardo Iamuuri. Also included in the exhibition is a new installation in the Great Hall titled I used to wear crowns on display through November. 

Sriwhana Spong was born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1979 and holds a Master of Fine Art from the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam, Holland and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland. Recent exhibitions include Taking Form, with Agatha Gothe-Snape, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia (2013) and all our relations at the 18th Biennale of Sydney (2012). In 2012 she was also selected as a finalist for the prestigious Walters Prize at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. Her work is collected by major institutions including Tepapa Tongarewa National Museum of New Zealand, Auckland Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of New South Wales.  She comes to Neu Kirche following a prestigious one-year residency at the DAAD in Berlin, Germany. She is represented by Michael Lett in New Zealand.

 

Yinzer House gallery: DOLL HOUSE BY THOMAS WATERS

On view by appointment through November 6th

"I was interested in magnifying them, such that they become bigger than life, and seeing the object as sculpture displaying grace, gesture and pose. But the most striking quality of these dolls is their silence, which leaves their stories to be deciphered and invented."

One of Pittsburgh's great outsider artists, The artist works within the mediums of print and photography. In a revealing show of large scale photographs, where gender ambiguities, trauma and the passage of time coalesce.
