Richard Joughin: The Pioneers

October 11, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - October 23, 2014 @ 3:00 pm

Opening in Project Space as part of Artweek Auckland
Saturday 11 October 2 – 3.30pm

After a hiatus in his exhibiting career the Depot Artspace is pleased to welcome back Richard Joughin with his series of ceramic works, The Pioneers. These works explore how shelter creates a sense of security and belonging; that housing is a form of community. Playing with the idea of kit sets these sculptures focus on colonial construction and how foreigners settled here, forming a connection to the future and a disconnection to the past. Some of the subjects they address are;

  • Shelter, security, belonging
  • Settler tent community feel / disconnection from the past
  • Foreigners in a new land
  • Individual and the group
  • Different groupings like a piece of theatre
  • Different groupings = different usage (the life within)
  • Sequence
  • Simplicity / economy of design
