UPCOMING

PLATO - KRIS ERICKSEN
- Wednesday 3 October, from 6:00pm

Enter the creative domain of Kris Ericksen's Plato system - a modular, interlocking design concept that can turn everyday functional objects into modern art. Wednesday 3 October, from 6:00pm.
Please RSVP to kris@plato.lighting or dylan@potockipaterson.co.nz
EXHIBITION DATES: 3rd to 7th October, 11am to 6pm weekdays, 11am to 3pm weekends.
Inspired by the idea of play, Kris created Plato because he truly believes that play and creativity are important parts of our lives. Like the building blocks from our childhood we are only limited by our imagination as to what can be assembled using this system. Plato provides an outlet for play that results in functional and beautiful everyday objects. Beyond lighting Kris wants to apply the same principles of play to other products. Kris brings a combination of Danish and New Zealand origins influencing Plato, coupling South Pacific ingenuity and a "can do" attitude with the simplicity, minimalism and functionality of Scandinavian design heritage.

Aotearoa Audio Arts
- SEPTEMBER 27th - 29th

Aotearoa Audio Arts—is the first New Zealand festival of its kind, offering audiences a glimpse into the ground-breaking contemporary music, sound and media at the forefront of international arts scenes.

NZSM Associate Professor of Sonic Arts and Composition Dugal McKinnon says the festival will mix performances with gallery installations and explore the intersection of sound, space and motion. “Aotearoa Audio Arts has been curated to foster excellence and diversity and to stimulate new modes of connection between artists and audiences,” he says.

The festival features award-winning international artists Nicolas Bernier (Canada), Richard Chartier (United States), Myriam Bleau (Canada) and Anne La Berge (United States/ Netherlands), performing alongside acclaimed New Zealand artists such as Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu), Bridget Johnson, Blake Johnson, Flo Wilson, Mo Zareei and Jim Murphy.

Nicolas Bernier, a Canadian audiovisual artist and former winner of the world’s most prestigious award in new media/digital arts—Prix Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica, brings his winning work which uses mechanical and kinetic apparatuses, in combination with digital technology, to create a conceptually and aesthetically arresting installation.

Los Angeles-based artist Richard Chartier is a pioneer of an innovative approach to electronic music called "microsound", and founder of LINE, one of the most influential record labels in independent electronic music. His works explore the inter-relationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception, and the act of listening itself.

Aotearoa Audio Arts will highlight international and New Zealand artists working at the cutting edge of multidisciplinary genres and media: from kinetic, mechanical, and robotic art, to glitch, noise, experimental acoustic and electronic music, presenting physical, digital, and audiovisual works of sound art.

We here at Potocki Paterson promote the acquisition of art. If you like it, you should buy it - even if it is for someone else. If you have a collection, you should add to it. If you've never bought a piece of art, you should start. Collecting is one of the joys in life. MY ART makes it easier to own original art work by providing interest free loans via selected galleries. It's the new way to buy ART.
