0800 Phantom presents Kiosk
An Oblique Project
Kiosk Now Open!
A new public art space has arrived in Christchurch.
Kiosk, on the corner of High and Manchester Streets
(outside Java), is providing a venue for funky contemporary
art twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Designed
to bring out the voyeur in the passing pedestrians,
Kiosk takes the intimidation out of art, and brings
it into the 'quick glance' culture of the 00's.
Conceived and designed by Oblique's founder, Julaine
Stephenson, Kiosk responds to her observation of a city
with a healthy yet hidden arts culture, operating mainly
within the confines of galleries and institutions. The
Kiosk program includes young artists from varying backgrounds,
using digital technologies, video, sound, as well as
more traditional sculptural media. The exhibitions change
every four weeks, with the exception of short term displays
for arts related events in the city.
Kiosk opens with Sean Kerr's new low-end digital work,
bringing instability into a tempered environment. Kerr
currently lectures in Interactive Media, School of Design,
Artists include: Sean Kerr, Vanessa Henn, Douglas Kelleher,
Dan Arps, Julaine Stephenson, Adam Willetts, Nathan
Pohio, Warren Olds, Blank Industries, and Olivia Lory
Sponsorship and support for the project has been generous.
In particular, Oblique would like to thank 0800 Phantom
for providing major sponsorship for the construction
of the Kiosk. The Kiosk program has been kindly supported
by Creative Communities.
