City Art Rooms, Auckland NZ — 2007

Proposing a departure from Duchamp's readymades, the Being-made shifts internally in pivotal ways, evolving and inhabiting a permanent state of flux. Transforming mass produced and natural media (turf-grass, float glass, mirror, bird feathers) into permanent performative art, the beingmade activates a direct relationship between artwork, environment, viewer, gallery and collector.

Beingmade n. 1. a work in progress 2. an object or idea permanently in production 3. an image in flux through materials, context and open authorship 4. a work of art able to manifest in multiple, unique versions.  (Definition:  Gill Gatfield, 2007)
