Memory Imprints of Papua New Guinea
BY ULRIKE STURM
@ VOL 18
ON AUG 24, 2016
"Memories were triggered and ideas for drawing came flooded back into my mind."
In Memory Imprints of Papua New Guinea from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast, visual artist Ulrike Sturm focuses on her work with artist’s books, printmedia, and visual narratives. As a teen Ulrike lived in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG). The impact of that amazing experience never really left her and she cherished the vivid childhood memories she had of those years. It is perhaps strange then, that she didn’t go back there for such a long time, only once until two months ago. Ulrike’s Pecha Kucha talk is therefore about her recent trip to PNG, what adventures she encountered, and how all this relates to her creative practice as a visual artist. This includes her ephemeral vinyl artworks – many of which draw on memory and are destroyed at the end of the exhibit.
Time and Tide
BY JO ATHERTON
@ VOL 7
ON SEP 27, 2016
Artist Jo Atherton highlights the diversity of plastic objects washing ashore on the British coastline, and how the ubiquity of this material enables us to reinterpret stories of our time. Millions of years ago, fuelled by sunlight, marine plankton flourished and then settled on the ocean floor, slowly transforming into oil. This same oil is used to produce the endless plastic objects that dominate our everyday lives. When inked and printed, plastic flotsam fragments bear a stark resemblance to the rich diversity of microscopic marine life - a worrying and ironic connection to a beautiful natural process.

PKN Raglan Vol. 1
Raglan recently hosted its very first PechaKucha Night, and here now is a look at how things went courtesy of a report sent in by organizer Rodger Gallagher. Last night's first PechaKucha Night at the Old School Arts Centre was a great success with standing room only in the theatre room. The evening started with David Wimmer giving his presentation on the work that he and Frank did in Samoa helping the Samoans rebuild 'upstairs' after the tsunami. Dirk de Ruysscher covered the very interesting bike ride he has developed to the Nikau cave near Port Waikato. The trip includes harbour crossing and two days riding on metal roads with some amazing scenery along the way and of course an unspoilt cave at the overnight stop. Jean Carbon finished the first half with her presentation on traditional textiles along the Silk Road. The 'Beer Break' proved very popular and it was difficult to get the audience back for the second half. Pieter ten Broek's photos of board and kite sports around Raglan drew gasps of amazement from the audience. Wanda Barker provided a contrast with her history of Femme Art and the proposition that it needs to be revitalised. Hilary Ramage covered creative development through a series of prints. Finishing the night was Jon Berczley who took us right from the seed through to putting food on the plate with his gardening passion. Arts Council Chairperson, Rodger Gallagher said that the PechaKucha Night was one of the most successful events held at the Arts Centre and everybody is keen for the next evening on the 4th June. Full list of presenters: - David Wimmer on the rebuilding work he helped with after the Samoan tsunami - Amanda Watson on creating her paintings - Dirk de Ruysscher on mountain biking around Whaingaroa - Rodger Gallagher on the evolving architecture and use of the Old School since 1883 -- including 1st public viewing of plans recently discovered in the National Archives - Linda Holmes on favourite photos - Jean Carbon on textiles along the Silk Road - Pieter ten Broek on surfing, kite and skate boarding in Raglan - Wanda Barker on Femme Art - Yann Bordier on living and sailing in the Caribbean - Sioux Swann on Ruapuke Sunsets - Hilary Ramage on creative printmaking - Jon Berczely on seeds Below, a look at the flyer for PKN Raglan Vol. 1.
