Ari Edgecombe, Invercargill, currently curator at the Southland Museum, presents his work, which he describes as.... 'A culmination of what is rare and precious. An act of gathering past experiences and merging them as an elemental form, a place, a vision. Inspired by the visual quality of water surfaces in the remote area of Tamatea, kelp forest views off the shore of Aramoana, the search for a long buried whale in the dunes of Oue and by patterns of weaving and net making, Ari Edgecombe creates an environment connected to water that becomes a site for memory, life and experience. Large-scale suspended sculptural forms and painted lengths of material converge with moving imagery in this deeply layered, atmospheric installation.'
