In operation since 2000, the Cuckoo collective consists of a loose grouping of artists, curators and writers known for their practice of taking over existing gallery spaces for short term projects.
From 2002 to 2004, Gridlocked negotiated the use of public space for artists throughout central city Christchurch.
CASKO was a series of site-specific shows in the non-gallery space of 'The Chiller' in High St, Christchurch in August and September 1997.
The Otira Project16 January to 13 February 1999
Thoroughfare1 - 28 May 1999
A site specific project responding to the vacated commercial spaces of Sydenham, Christchurch. As part of Sydenham's Mayfest, an Arts into Business project, the sixteen participating artists created work involving the recent history and culture of the district, in the form of sculptural installation, performance and video.
The Kiosk began in 2000 as an initiative of the Oblique Trust, but since May 2003 has been under the auspices of The Physics Room.
Resembling a grey tardis with observation windows, The Kiosk was located in the busy pedestrian sector at the intersection of High, Lichfield and Manchester Streets in Ōtautahi Christchurch (just one block away from The Physics Room), making it the most public Physics Room art site.
A labour of love.
