What happens when you capture an orgone? The mysterious object
in the Kiosk this month alludes to psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich's
1930's theories of orgone accumulation, a cosmic energy that charges
the cells of all living things. Or perhaps it is a stray UFO, just
happened to fall from the sky into the waiting arms of the Kiosk?
Sleek, sculptural, and beautifully crafted, Christchurch based
artist Rachel Brunton's work could have come from the set of a retro
sci-fi movie. Inert and dormant during the day, at night it comes
alive, an eerie machine hovering like floating plasma or fast moving
particles of light and sound.
KIOSK is a permanent
public art site for temporary installations of new audio, screen-based,
and object based work, twenty four hours a day / seven days a week.
Located on the corner
of High and Manchester Streets (outside Java Cafe) in Christchurch, New
Zealand. Check out the web site for documentation and further info.
