You are invited to exhibition #3 of Pearce Gallery’s annual One Day Wonder project. One Day Wonder is a research initiative with the mandate of providing a research based public forum for the discussion and development of new, emerging or experimental aspects of contemporary art practice. The 2014 series Growing pains provides a platform for recent graduates from across the country to develop a research project. In July ODW presents Ride The Fire, in which Auckland artist and Unitec graduate, Kenneth Merrick, brings his energetic and eclectic practice to the Pearce Gallery. Merrick will be using the one-week project-space to develop an experimental installation expanding upon his interest in fragmentary narrative and speculative histories/futures. Expect an active and energizing mix of drawings, painting, object and moving image. Opening: 5pm Monday 28 July, Pearce Gallery, 130 St Georges Bay Rd, Parnell.
