AVAILABLE IN 5 COLOURS BLOCKOUT ROLLER BLINDS* Nakagawa offers shelter to walkers Andante: A slow moving sculpture by Kazu Nakagawa will feature at this year's Headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf, which opens on January 28 and runs for 24 days. Kazu Nakagawa has created a work that viewers can carry along the walkway with them in this year s Headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition. At the start of the walk viewers will be offered silken umbrellas to carry with them. The umbrellas are black inside and cream on the outside giving protection from the sun, wind and rain. The project is called Andante -- the musical term for a walking tempo. Texts printed on the fabric of the umbrellas repeat the word andante in differ- ent phonetic spellings. I m attempting a way that you can draw some- thing like a portrait from the sound of word, the artist says. Viewers are encour- aged to read the word andante over and over as they walk at a moder- ately slow tempo, thereby altering their experience of the walk. Two-hundred umbrellas will be for sale during the exhibition at $150 each. They will be numbered and signed by the artist. The umbrellas are a continuation of the series of Mr Nakagawa s works titled Labelling. Projects in the series include [un]dress, a collabor- ation with fashion de- signer Beth Ellery. This will be Mr Nakag- awa s fourth exhibit in the biannual coastal sculpture exhibition. In 2009 he also created a work that played on language with Rangitoto, a glass case containing books with the work in- scribed on them, placed in front a view of the vol- canic island itself. The artist has lived on Waiheke Island since the late 1980s. He studied language and engineer- ing, and then developed a career in product design and furniture making before extending his practice into the field of sculpture. Mr Nakagawa is rep- resented by Bath Street Gallery in Parnell and Campbell Grant Gallery in Christchurch. He is also an arts adviser to the Auckland Council on the develop- ment of the Waiheke Island library and ser- vice centre building in Oneroa. Headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf will show works of 39 artists on the walkway from Matiatia around Church Bay from January 28 to February 20. Visit www.sculpture onthegulf.co.nz for more details. Innovative organic art Art from nature: Bella Joseph helps Jude Chambers with the toetoe installation at Whakanewha Regional Park created by Lyndal Jefferies. An installation of 100 toetoe stems in the water was among the innovative works made from organic materials at the Nature Art Day at Whakanewha Regional Park over New Year. Every summer the camp hosts a day where adults and children are invited to create artworks from what they find in the bush or on the beach. The works are then left to dis- integrate and be recycled by nature. A giant stick insect, a toetoe and pohutukawa flower tepee and a pirate ship were some of the works created by children. Installation artist Lyndal Jef- feries, a former winner of Sculp- ture on the Gulf, used 100 toetoe stems to trace the natural curva- ture of a sandbank about 50 metres out to sea. I wanted to create a work which used the natural form of the location and what grows nat- urally there to highlight the beauty of this unique location, she says. With their stems locked into the mudflats the toetoe curve then slowly disintegrated and was washed away. It was wonderful to see chil- dren swimming and kayaking in between the stems or picking the ones up that had washed in to create new works of art with them, camper Liz Coutts says. Nature Art Day takes place on December 29 every year provid- ing decoration for the park s New Year celebrations. An experimental short documentary by filmmaker Bridget Quick is being made about Kazu Nakagawa. Visit www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz.
