Featuring Tim J Veling and Daegan Wells
Curated by Melanie Oliver
Opening Friday 24 July, 6pm

The exhibition Persistency features various documents made in Christchurch’s public space subsequent to the earthquakes. Although quiet undertakings, the works of Tim J Veling and Daegan Wells imply the erosion of democracy in the city. The disempowerment of Canterbury people was experienced through the enforced clearing of the residential red zone; delayed public access to the central city red zone; the drafting process of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority blueprint plan; a series of school closures; failure to address the social housing crisis; and lack of public discussion around urban design issues. These decisions have long term effects for the city.

Persistency also includes records of protests, graffiti, urban exploration, foraging and salvage projects: small actions performed in spite of the challenging conditions. Together these documents generate an alternative or parallel reading of recent events, questioning the construction of urban narratives and asserting the ongoing need to participate in public discourse.
