Riff Raff

9 Feb – 4 Mar
2017
Enjoy Summer Residency

Riff Raff originated as a semi-imaginary artist-run space started by Li-Ming Hu with special guest founding member Daphne Simons in mid-2016. While on residency at Enjoy Public Art Gallery from 30 January – 19 February, Riff Raff will co-opt the gallery space as their production house, organising a live-streamed 12-hour telethon-style event to solicit a diverse collection of donated work from artists and the general public throughout the nation.

2016
An Enjoy Trust Project

Curated by Jordana Bragg, Gardens Against the Sun brings together photographic and moving image works that position the artist as both preservationist and conservator of not only the subject or environment depicted, but of temporality itself.

Latent Image* responds both to the material qualities of the gallery space and its past incarnation as a photographic studio. Architectural details are miniaturized, inverted, burnt back. The familiar becomes unfamiliar, like the black sky in a photographic negative.

Hidden City

Heather Hayward

13 Apr – 7 May 2016
2016

Dominant narratives around the economy tend to represent it as essentially capitalist—where waged work and the exchange of money are seen as the single most important parts of our economy. In these narratives, other forms of socio-economic exchange (such as bartering, gift-giving, sharing, cooperatives, foraging, and using common resources) are either dismissed as insignificant, or idealistic pipe dreams that could never work in contemporary society.

Rupture / capture

Johanna Mechen

16 Mar – 9 Apr 2016
2016

Enjoy is pleased to present a new installation by Johanna Mechen, our 2016 Summer Artist in Residence.

Beginning with a quest to video her vitreous eye floaters, Mechen explores the relationship between Optometry and Photography, weaving historical and contemporary elements of both practices with factual and fictitious discoveries.

An Enjoy Trust project

Feminism in Aotearoa/New Zealand and abroad is often represented in the mainstream media as a white middle-class issue focused around sex and career. But this barely touches the edges of the multiplicity of feminisms and how feminisms have affected all of our lives. This year the Enjoy Trust put out a proposal call for exhibition works, actions, and pieces for the Enjoy Occasional Journal which expand the discourse on feminisms.

Death Workshop

Hiroharu Mori

14 Oct – 7 Nov 2015
2015

Death Workshop documents a workshop project Mori undertook with a group of student actors over the course of several months. The students were asked to imagine how they will die (not how they wished to die) and direct other student actors in enactments of these scenes as a short play.
