Over the weekend I visited ‘Light Show’ at the Auckland Art Gallery and was absolutely blown away.
Works dating anywhere from the '60s to the present day create an immersive experience that can be thoroughly enjoyed by the young and old equally. A personal favourite ‘Wedgework V’ from 1974 by James Turrell is absolutely stunning. It’s impossible to capture by photograph and has to be seen and experienced to fully understand the weight of the work.
As well as the aforementioned exhibition Olafur Eliasson has a hands on installation consisting of thousands of white lego bricks also currently on show. New visitors are invited to contribute to the work by construction and re-construction, making it a constantly evolving series of towers limited only by the imagination.
All in all a must-see!
