Charming the Snake of Reason
Aline Keller, Bik Van der Pol, Maria Pask, Marnie Slater, Ruth Buchanan, Sjoerd van Leeuwen, Sjoerd Westbroek
20 Oct – 13 Nov 2010
Led by archival research, evidence-based processes, site-responsive methodologies, or the search for unique modes of gesture and speech, the works in Charming the Snake of Reason trace the limits of communication itself, charting a curved line that suggests meaning as fluctuating in the spatial, experiential and ephemeral situation of the encounter.
A Listening Eye

Casual Romance Club II
D.A.N.C.E ART CLUB
30 May – 9 Jun 2010
Romance is heavily mediated through digital communication. We’re using internet dating sites, Facebook, mobile texts to connect. We’re also influenced by the media’s idea of what “romance” should be through popular movies, reality TV and music videos.
D.A.N.C.E. Art Club
6 May – 29 May 2010
Enjoy is pleased to present Framework, a photographic installation by Wellington-based artist Andrew Beck.
1 Apr – 1 May 2010
Hollis' video and 3D animated works seem familiar and yet unsettling. They apply and manipulate aspects of gaming culture and virtual reality in a disquieting juxtaposition with documentary style home videos. A sense of urban drift can be pinned down within banal narratives, while retaining an assuredness of the core values of Māori, and urban identities.
4 Mar – 27 Mar 2010
Enjoy is pleased to present Mall, a series of recent works on paper by Ruth Cleland. The series documents suburban shopping malls located around Auckland and Hamilton and represents two years of the artist's work, including drawings that were completed during a three-month residency at the Vermont Studio Centre, USA in 2009.
The Sun Shines Bright
19 Feb – 27 Feb 2010
As his first move in building a new home, a man bought several acres of land far out in the country. He was extremely busy and worked very hard. However, every weekend he would drive out to the country and work on his land. While he saved for his home he planted a garden. Wild bushes were replaced with saplings and flowers and over time he watched his garden slowly grow.
28 Jan – 27 Feb 2010
Taking the peyote cactus and Aldous Huxley's The Doors Of Perception as a points of departure, Simon Glaister will continue to explore these ideas at Enjoy alongside his ongoing investigation of the ever-contentious boundary between man and nature - that which is provided for us and that which we make for ourselves. Central to the residency will be the motif of the garden, and the notion of the artist as guide, shaman, or conduit of hidden or otherwise unobserved knowledge, experience and alternative realities. We might ask: is an artist privy to knowledge, observations, or experiences otherwise inaccessible to non-artists? If so, are these insights of genuine relevance to others? And further, if they are, are they wholly communicable?
