ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Lucy Meyle’s practice uses the absurd as a site for re-imaging and re-imagining our relations to what is human and more-than-human. Moving across sculpture, installation, video, and publication, her practice is engaged in a wilful re-orientation of relationships through humour, collaboration and anti-smooth materiality. Recent projects include Shifting ground, Silo 6, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2018, Looking forwards and backwards (with Ziggy Lever), Blue Oyster Art Project Space, Ōtepoti Dunedin, Bad Actors, 2017, MEANWHILE, Pōneke Wellington, and Serving Suggestions, 2016, RM, Tāmaki Makaurau. She recently completed a practice-led PhD titled “Does a Flower Rehearse for Spring” at Auckland University of Technology.
Emerita Baik is an artist based in Pōneke Wellington, and holds a BFA from Massey University. Recent exhibitions include I love more than two loves, 2019, RM, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, EOmma, 2019, Toi Pōneke Arts Centre and AAAhui2018 @ the Engine Room, 2018, The Engine Room, Massey University Wellington (group). She is a current studio artist at Play_station.
