dc.description.abstract Curated by Allan Smith for Snakepit, High Street, Auckland; 17 February –1 March, 2012 See attached exhibition text and list of artists. Perhaps we still haven’t really learned what Allen Curnow called “the trick of standing upright here,” and maybe that’s a good thing. Perhaps we realise, after all, it was always a trick, a temporary contrivance anyway; something precarious. The exhibition, then, is about finding one’s way in a tilting, shifting world; of finding one’s bearings through adapting rhythmically and exactly to altered gradients and interruptions; about experiencing the world as a rain of data. It suggests different tempos for working with inversions, inventions, obstacles, diversions; for forming provisional tracks through a landscape on the move; amidst an infinity of objects, ensembles and directional variance. It is about falling, slipping, rhyming. It is about a speculative, projective improvisation that is both material and ideal. It’s about accepting the varying degrees of success and failure of attempts to find purchase in a world of erosion, grace, and intermittence. en
