Light, Sound and Sculpture at the LUX Te Ao Marama PRECINCT
Paint, marble, fabric, wood, film... all are fundamental artists' materials. What we don't often think about is the role that light plays in art - not only through illumination. Maori artists have harnessed light in all kinds of ways in work created for Wellington's LUX Light Festival this year. Lynn Freeman talks to Robert Jahnke and Hemi Macgregor. Hemi is working with musician Mara TK on an audio visual work, and Bob's presenting neon lit crosses originally created for an outdoor exhibition on Waiheke Island.
