Studio: Space & Time is a new artwork by Richard Maloy that will unfold over 2020 and 2021 at the artist’s home on Waiheke Island. The artwork borrows its structure from residency programmes and will see Maloy offering his home and studio to provide space and time for creative thinking and research. The gift and its uptake by others become the material and mechanism of his work – an extension of his ongoing interest in architecture, space, and the exploration of artistic process.
In preparation for the artwork, Maloy invited his friend and mentor Billy Apple to make one of his signature alterations to the space. Apple produced a site-specific work plan for a new studio deck and extended roof based on the golden ratio proportion of 1:1.618. On completion Maloy will have Apple’s conceptual work Extension of the Given: Richard Maloy Studio as part of his studio space.
Maloy and McCahon House artist in residence Steve Carr will discuss the artwork Studio: Space & Time at 5.30pm, Wednesday 29 January 2020.
Exhibition opens: 5.30–7.30pm Tuesday 28 January 2020
