by Hannah and Aaron Beehre
4 September - 5 October 2002
for the Physics Room Hard Sell series
Continuing the 2002 Hard Sell series profiling new and (post) emergent
artists, we present a collaborative project by Christchurch artists
Hannah and Aaron Beehre.
The two have worked together on a number of projects and have exhibited
at the City Gallery, Wellington, the Govett Brewster Gallery, New
Plymouth, and most recently the Jonathan Smart Gallery, Christchurch.
Playful yet elegant, their artistic practice sources and reworks
images directly from contemporary design and fashion - logos, posters,
cute Manga style creatures. They have previously worked within the
media of painting, sculpture and video, but for the Physics Room
they have created a screensaver installed as a crisp projection
with accompanying soundtrack.
The Beehre's often create works which appear light, fresh and ephemeral,
designed to date quickly, as market driven and prone to temporal
readings as the street art it apes.
