24 – 27 September 2014, and forthcoming, Switzerland  6 – 17 May 2015
For this exhibition Cally Trench and Tineke Bruijnzeels made a drawing every day for a year, accompanied every week by a different guest artist. My seven sequential drawings reflect the shifting landscape observed while travelling between Hong Kong and New Zealand provided a further transition as the week went from 2013 into 2014. Through transitions of time, seasons and hemispheres the constant has been the mountainous terrain where the Hong Kong peaks morphed into the New Zealand Kaimai ranges.

Dancing with Sirius: lines of light   (series of prints and artist book, 2013)
In the high altitude of the Chilean Andes, the cloudless sky revealed a dazzling canopy of stars as night fell over the Atacama Desert, a stargazer’s paradise. Standing on the summit of the aptly named Cerro Tololo, ‘mountain in front of the abyss’, and surrounded by the imposing white observatories in the dark cold atmosphere, there was one star that captivated me – Sirius – the brightest star in the night sky, and visible in both southern and northern hemispheres. Hypnotised by its brightness and movement I spent most of the night with a handheld camera intent on following this one dominant star. The random choreographic gestures of my arms, like drawing in the air, created lines of light, ephemeral ghost-like threads danced across the sky as each one became suspended in time in my camera.
