Group exhibition: Parallel Lines - Art Collector

Parallel Lines brings together the seemingly disparate works of artists represented by Paulnache in Gisborne, New Zealand. The installation of artworks create a visual representation of timelines, slipstreams, jet-steams, tracks and paths alluding to the variable ways that artists interact in practice and through place.

Parallel Lines, curated by Las Vegas based artist Matthew Couper, traces multiple narratives and in turn creates a wider narrative pursuing concepts of glocalization - a relatively new term reflecting global standards and local aspects. The artists on display in this group exhibition act on this premise of glocalization - living throughout New Zealand and abroad in Berlin, Melbourne, Las Vegas, Manila and Mumbai, but all returning to the provincial East Coast city of Gisborne in New Zealand. The exhibition showcases work by Evan Woodruffe, Star Gossage, Matt Summers, Justin Jade Morgan, Brian Campbell, Matt Arbuckle, Scott Gardiner, Valerie Bos, Jevijoe Vitug, Rob McLeod, Ben Pearce, Ria Camp, Sanjay Theodore, Sam Kiyoumarsi, Clive Kelly, John Pule, John Walsh, Arie Hellendoorn, Geoff Tune, Bill Riley, Dion Hitchens, James Ormsby and Matthew Couper.
