A Cage for Voices & The Red Zone by Tom Dale for SCAPE Public Art Season 2018
UK-based artist Tom Dale contributed three works to SCAPE 2018, two works made in Ōtautahi, a sculpture Monument to the Present and a video work The Red Zone, plus an earlier video work A Cage for Voices where the depths of the ocean were probed by a voice looking to understand the significance of a series of objects that fall through the water from the surface above. The video work, shot in October 2017 in the Burwood area of the Red Zone, explored the changing states of our surroundings and the turbulence of our interior realms, speaking of moments of rupture and forces of resilience.
These video works could be viewed throughout the Season online, on an exterior screen in the forecourt of CoCA, and within the opening weekend public programmes at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū’s auditorium on Sunday 7 October 2018.
