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.
