Idle_FLUX | 2014
by Courtney Spargo
Idle_FLUX, 2014 by Courtney Spargo is a suspended canopy installation, which explores the organic form of the Ōtākaro/Avon River’s water through weaving techniques associated with a kupenga (fishing net).
Idle_FLUX is made from PVC plastic that has been hand-woven by the artist, over 12 weeks of construction time.
Courtney Spargo: “After researching how the riverbed was occupied through fishing, my installation comes from an interest in exploring the laborious craftsmanship associated with creating the means to do so.
"Using weaving techniques to create a kupenga (fishing net), my design takes its form from the flow of the Ōtākaro/Avon River within the Christchurch Central Business District."
