Join local Audio Describer Ang Pearson for a described tour of two of our major visual art installations, coupled with an audio description of the Christ Church Cathedral.
The first work is In Bathing, Bask, a playful textile installation by autistic artist Bailee Lobb. This work consists of large-scale inflatable soothing sensory bubbles. Join Bailee and Ang for a tour of the work and an artist talk from Bailee inside one of the sculptures.
The second work is displayed inside the Christ Church Cathedral and is Karen Sewell‘s Luminary. An exploration of the relationships between colour, light and space. This accompanied with an audio description of certain elements of the Cathedral.
The Tour starts at the Refinery ArtSpace (114a Hardy Street, Nelson 7010) and finishes at the Christ Church Cathedral. Please meet at the Refinery ArtSpace by 2:30pm to be welcomed into the exhibition space.
Following the afternoon tour, there is concert Reimagining Mozart by Voices New Zealand Chamber Choir, presented by Chamber Music NZ at Christ Church Cathedral at 7:30pm. This is separate from the audio described tour, and this concert will not be audio described. However, it is an excellent opportunity to hear the music with context provided earlier in the afternoon about the visual architecture. You can find out more information about this show on our listing.
