The big idea

Featuring artists: Stuart Bridson, Carole Driver, Sylvia Sinel and Shaun Tan
Curator: Sybille Schlumbom

‘Birdbrain’ explores the possibility to find belonging in transit.

This exhibition brings together four artists that traverse with ease between cultural, geographical and emotional territories:
Stuart Bridson (NZ)
Stuart resides in Raglan in a house filled with his sculptures and paintings, surrounded by objects, textures and structures that are easily identified as the source of inspiration for his art.
Carole Driver (UK, Canada, AUS)
Carole is a global nomad whose journey has taken her from the UK to Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Sylvia Sinel (Sweden)
Swedish born Sylvia settled in Hamilton a few years back where she discovered the use of ceramics for her arts practice.
Shaun Tan (AUS)
Shaun, Melbourne based Australian illustrator of Chinese/British heritage, touches the meaning of ‘belonging’ and ‘dislocation’ in most of his works, e.g. ‘The Arrival’, ‘The Lost Thing’, ‘Tales from outer suburbia’.

German born and New Zealand based curator/artist Sybille Schlumbom a.k.a. billadonna has spent most of her life flying rather than nesting. Her work as a creative professional draws from the excitement to be lost in translation, visuals becoming the natural choice of communication.
