A solo show by Aaron Frater, 3D artist, mentor and tutor at The Learning Connexion:


‘Urban Renewal Safety Procedure Zone’

3-7 June 2017

17 Tory Street


Opening hours: 10am - 6pm

Grand opening: Friday 2 June at 6pm


Aaron Frater’s works hold the nature of their material, while showing something of the forms, surrounds, markings and directions involved in Wellington’s current destroy-to-rebuild cycle of removing and constructing buildings. This idea of ‘destroy and create’ forms human history, is mythic in our stories of gods and demi-gods and in the everyday, as can be seen by the disappearance of the Reading car parking building from Tory Street.

Safety barrier mesh, used by building and demolition industries to screen a safe zone from a potential danger zone – a ubiquitous thing that proliferates in this post-quake, post-Auckland housing bubble era – is a material rich in visual information. A liminal in-between space, a zone rich in possibility, for new things to appear.

Aaron’s sculpture, jewellery and mixed-media work is inspired by his surroundings and the nature of the materials, as much as by his own internal landscape. His large-scale sculptural works can be found in private gardens and homes.

    Cool. Aaron needs to update his website to be mobile friendly. It's 2017, not 2005.
