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.

“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).

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.

“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.
