Please join us for the launch of Working Together: Nestling Thoughts.
Featuring contributions by Bridget Reweti, Louie Zalk-Neale, Nik, Sophie Davis, Sorawit Songsataya and Vera Mey, Nestling Thoughts is the first iteration of a slow-burning publishing project that explores the relationships and forms of exchange artists working with today.
Under the title “Working Together”, this edited series of artist-led publications consider collaboration, proximity, and contact within creative practice and aims to embrace new trains of thought that emerge during research and making processes.
The publication departs from a film research project by Sorawit Songsataya that focuses on the relationship between the kōtuku (also known as the white heron, eastern great egret นกยางโทนใหญ่, or Ardea alba modesta) and the Waitangiroto Nature Reserve on the West Coast of Te Waipounamu. It exists within a larger body of work by the artist which explores gravity, meteorology, and flight as forces that bind the human and more-than-human. Developed in the two years following initial periods of filming at the nesting site at Waitangiroto, Nestling Thoughts extends an atmosphere of enquiry around this process. The publication is designed by Katie Kerr.
There will be food and wine, and copies will be for sale for a special launch price of $30. If you can't be there in person, copies will soon be available to purchase from Expensive Hobby.
