 aUckland art gallery
judy darragh: Limbo


fabrication assistance | silicone & jewels

A highly respected New Zealand artist, Judy Darragh is known for her brightly coloured sculptural collections of found objects, recycled items, industrial materials and much more. Since the early 1990s, she has been identified with large ambitious works which alter public spaces to glorious effect.

Limbo is a collection of seven large metallic shapes accented with fluorescent paint. Hanging from the kauri canopy of our North Atrium, they scatter light like a chandelier or mirror ball, while the forms themselves resemble meteors or space matter.

Referencing Judy Darragh’s interest in science-fiction and domestic life – and how the two interact – Limbo‘s metal foil construction suggests every-day kitchen tin foil, while its shapes represent the early days of space exploration. Through this work Judy Darragh shows us how what’s familiar and commonplace can shift into the unknown, far-reaching zones of the universe.

Costume DesignER

written and directed by BEN CHILDS
produced by BEN CHILDS & BRETT MILLS
based on a story by JACK BARROWMAN

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4610184/

It’s Tu’s first trip on a spaceship that takes earth’s trash deep into space. He sees the job as a stepping-stone to bigger things and looks down on his senior workmate, Barry, who’s been doing it for years. Cabin fever sets in and Barry tries to re-ignite his old drumming hobby. It’s not until Tu discovers that Barry’s enthusiasm for the job may be a façade, that he begins to understand the old man.

Shiloh Dobie collaborated with Julia Fenn and Jack Taylor to design and construct Tu’s orange spacesuit (depicted).

COSTUME DESIGN

starring PETER FEENEY

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3503344/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt

Birdsong is a quirky coming-of-age short film set in a stylized 90’s New Zealand. It follows a young boy’s changing perception of his eccentric father. He steals dogs, he runs obsessive tests on injured animals, and wears a finch-like bird mask. A tragic turn raises the stakes, the relationship now hinging on the validity of the father’s experiments.

Birdsong was awarded First Place in The Best Foreign Film Category at Indie Fest USA International Film Festival, 2013 and was also selected for the Sandfly International Film Festival in Australia.

Shiloh Dobie collaborated with Julia Fenn and Jack Taylor to design and build the Father’s bird mask (depicted).

“RIGOROUS RELAXATION”
INSTALLATION


ARTIST // Academic Research

Traditions of monasticism, eremitism and asceticism exist in many cultures and traditions.  In examining whether Monasticism is relevant to a Modern world, this practice-based project proposes that, through reconsidering the definition of prayer, moments of error can reveal a sense of humanity, surprise and an unconscious intentionality of the mind (Pallasmaa, p. 50, 2009).

CONCRETE TERRACES

CONCRETE TERRACES
site-specific painting


ARTIST

original artwork by SHILOH DOBIE

NZ Art Show Entry & Studio Installation

Based on the Oriental Bay Concrete Terraces in Wellington, New Zealand, CONCRETE TERRACES is an exploration of form, colour and painterly qualities.  With technical challenges of verticality, while maintaining translucency, Shiloh engaged in new mediums, glazes and bleed codes to achieve a wall installation, where perspectives change based on the viewers angle of view.  Individual terrace blocks disobey traditional rules of perspective, appearing slightly off-canter, unconventional, quaint and bizarre.  As blocks overlap, translucency builds, constructing new colours and levels of opacity.

Shiloh reproduced this studio installation on a piece of acrylic, spanning 2m across and 1m high.  The work was accepted and displayed at the NZ Art Show in Wellington, New Zealand in 2012.

THEATRE // CIRCUS


SCENIC ARTIST

produced by FUSE CIRCUS

NZ International Comedy Festival 2012

IN A STEAM PUNK SCI-FI WORLD, REVOLVER CAPTURES THE ROMANTICISM OF THE TRAVELLING CIRCUS & COMBINES IT WITH THE RAW CONTEMPORARY BLOOD-LUST OF THE STREETWISE MODERN WORLD.

Performed by internationally renowned New Zealand circus & physical theatre artists on a revolving stage, Revolver celebrates the idea of chance, juxtapositions of attraction & repulsion, gender, sexuality & body image.

With the audience all around the stage, the boundary between art & life dissolves & the audience becomes immersed in the imaginations of the artists where anything can & does happen!

A performance of anarchic humour, outrageous circus skills, live singing & audience interaction.

Shiloh Dobie painted the animated cog Set, through which the performers enter the stage (depicted).


Praise for Revolver:

All in all, Revolver is a remarkable, raunchy and risibly rude night at the cabaret circus.

Some people collect stamps, some people play sports, and some people undertake in-depth scientific surveys for each day of their entire lives. Let’s just say that Max Addison doesn’t collect stamps or play sports. The presentation of the findings from Max’s survey, findings that could indeed be literally considered their life’s work, will be a momentous occasion. To not attend such a momentous occasion could easily be construed as oafish or unthinking. Max is certain that you will wish to avoid this pitfall.

Shiloh Dobie, under the direction of Christine Urquhart, and through collaboration with Sarah Kirk and Lizzie Morris, designed and constructed the Set for The First 7500 Days of my Life (depicted).

Praise for The First 7500 Days of my Life:

…Max is wise to tell us that ‘everything is falling apart’. It is too and I have to say I’ve not seen so much chaos and carnage on a stage in a very long time. Anarchy rules to such an extent that even the appearance of an upstanding cartoon penis on the whiteboard doesn’t surprise us one little bit. The stage is trashed, there are cables everywhere, people fall over, friendship are ruined and it’s all incredibly, incredibly funny.’

– Lexie Matheson, Theatreview

‘The performer’s efforts are once again aided by set design. Utilising the previous set sans swings, The First 7500 Days of My Life also features a raised wooden stage with numerous trap doors that offer many comedic opportunities.’

– Rebekah Philson, whatsgoodblog

Set designers Sarah Kirk, Shiloh Dobie, and Lizzie Morris, under the mentorship of Christine Urquhart, provide a sleek set for the artificial world of Narcissus, and a DIY raise for 7500, tying them together with visible wiring under artificially lit ceiling panels, and while sightlines for Stephen Bain’s AV Design proved problematic in Narcissus, the issue is simply another tool for 7500 to use to their comedic advantage.

Three girls form a bond through their mutual love of a #popstar on Twitter. A boy and a girl accidentally meet on Facebook and form a friendship. On Tumblr, a boy with an infatuation for Greek myths and cats, uploads pictures of himself. In the 21st Narcissus, friendship exists between screens.

The 21st Narcissus is about learning to #loveyourself. The 21st Narcissus is about us.

Praise for The 21st Narcissus:

‘The swing seats that these three are restricted to, are part of the aesthetically pleasing set design of the show, created by Christine Urquhart with Sarah Kirk, Shiloh Dobie and Lizzie Morris. They hang in front of a white backdrop, and below are three white panels, shadowing various cords and coils. These features look amazing upon arrival.’

“WHISPERS”
SITE-SPECIFIC DRAWING


ARTIST // ACADEMIC RESEARCH

original artwork by SHILOH DOBIE

Tell a story; truth or a lie.  Explorations begin with a doodle on paper translated onto the wall with ballpoint pen.  Imposing rules for production, each drawing was copied from the one directly preceding. Thirteen drawings in total weaved their way around a white Studio wall, each taking 4-5 hours and changing ever so slightly with each reproduction.  At the end of the wall, the subsequent image was produced from memory as it weaved around the other side and back the way it came.

Investigating moments of variation within a mechanical reproduction process, Whispers is an immersive and overwhelming installation piece, evoking a sense of labour, time and human error.  Tools and materials become animated, revealing an energy, vitality and a life of their own through self-imposed production restraints where, arguably, artist becomes as much tool for production as objects are.
