Project description

Layla Rudneva-Mackay - The Dividing Surface
Wood and fur
15 August - 15 September 2000

Nostalgia, memory, death and melancholy flow and spill over into each other. Beautiful, familiar in some ways yet a sense of repulsion and strangeness.

Layla Rudneva-Mackay works in large scale installation, sound and light. A common feature is a clear geometric shape which provides a base for a play of ambiguity and dissolution. Graduated 1998 - Bachelor of Fine Arts, Otago Polytechnic School of Art with a sculpture/installation major. Exhibition sites include The Physics Room, Oblique - the Otira Project, The Honeymoon Suite, Hocken Library, and The Blue Oyster Gallery.
