Strange currents in odd places

Amazingly, now in its sixteenth year, it has been growing exponentially in size and character, attracting international groups and live events as well as supporting local artists. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talked to one of the curators, Tina Morris.

Johan Muyle has Left The Building – drawings, photographs & sculptures

“… One day in May, finding myself unexpectedly a guest in an English seaside villa, I allowed myself to be seduced by the idea of slipping some drawings and sculptures into the orderly chaos of this charmingly nostalgic house. Once my sense of curiosity and readiness to respond to the unforeseen had been aroused, the notions of ‘serendipity’ or ‘happenstance’ have led me to freely explore and take advantage of the unexpected, to think outside of the box, in search of a new way of experiencing things that question the status of the work of art…”.

Hoping for peace…

Alexandra Park is like the lungs going through the centre of the town of Hastings. Next to the rose garden and running alongside the stream lies the Peace Garden. It was conceived as the result of a conversation between the late Kevin Murphy and Sally Cole on 12 September 2001. The garden is dedicated to: “Personal, community and world peace…” Fiona Rankine and Erica Smith tell us the story of the latest development in the Peace Garden.
