My name is Elekis Poblete Teirney. I am an designer and
installation artist working with light as my medium. This year I
have been accepted into the Prague Quadrennial where I will be
presenting my work in two different exhibits, the Student/Emerging
Designer Exhibition and the Light Spot Exhibition.
I will be presenting the work 'Stoppage' which focuses on the
property of light being invisible unless touched. Audience members
are guided to explore and discover the light in its tangible form.
I began to develop this piece during my third year at Toi Whakaari
and have continued working on it for over six months now. I
consider it a great privilege to be able to share this work
The second piece I will be presenting is called 'We're Going To
The Disco'. This piece focuses on active spectatorship and the
potential of play by the audience. I am interested in the
accessibility of art and light installation is the way I wish to
tackle that interest.
Since the exhibition is all the way over in Prague I have to
hire and source the mayority of my equipment there.
This is where you come in, I need help to cover costs for hirage
of equipment, your support will make sure I can present the pieces
without compromising the vision and intention.
Every dollar counts, every share counts!
