COMING SOON

We are amidst gearing up for a labyrinth install and accompanying wearable Pasifika tape art residency in Oamaru as part of Fire and Steam and the Steampunk Festival at the end of May.

Then we are installing a large temporary tape art mural on the Wellington City and Sea Bridge for the City Councils Matariki event 'Ahi Ka' June 21st and 'Sky Show' June 29th.

Following this we are developing a light sculpture and community lantern workshops as part of the Hutt Winter Festival August 16 & 17th.

We are looking forward to the release of the International Tape Arts Convention's documentary about the exhibition in Berlin, where our work was shown alongside other tape artists from around the world.

Also excited to be invited to Singapore as part of a Drawing Symposium January 2020.


RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

A lovely time was had at Wanaka’s Festival of Colour, where local poets imagined new constellations for a new iteration of Celestia Zealantis as a labyrinth. We also facilitated a similarly themed project with fantastic local home school group.

We were in Oamaru last November as part of their Victorian Féte. Our classic blue improv perfomances drew passers-by directly into our Victorian themed murals, aided by pre-stencilled elements.

Our third "A Very Welly Christmas" on Lambton Quay last November saw our intricate and colourful 'Lotus Labyrinth' with live tape drawing around the perimeter.

We were humbled to have won the Arts & Culture category (Porirua) for the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for the Porirua Kite Project last year.

We supported Pasifika artists to share their skills with young people, as part of a new arts day programme as part of Hutt’s very successful Polyfest.

We facilitated the making of a three-part community labyrinth that will celebrate local imagery and stories into a permanent re-installable labyrinth for the Hutt Winter Festival. It continues to be used in the Hutt valley for groups to use as part of celebrations and special occasions.

Happy to have work sent to Berlin and installed as part of the second Tape Art Convention last July. The piece had highly detailed colour patterns within a figurative stained glass composition.

We created our very first permanent painted mural in Lower Hutt called 'Hold Fast' . We still used improv tape drawing for people and added stencilled details of a myriad of cultural patterns within the flying figurative formation.
