The idea behind the exhibition is to explore how art and design have evolved over time, with the aim of raising awareness of this emerging medium.
“What makes a Flue?
What is it and how did it evolve?” says Art and Design Director Dr Rishi Ghosh.”
Flue art is not just art or design.
Flue art was born out of a desire to show people the incredible work of art that’s being created and displayed today.”
Flue Art is a series of interactive exhibitions and events which will explore the evolution of flue art from the 1960s to today.
“It’s an exhibition that asks how does a Flues work in its own right, from its earliest forms, to its modern incarnation, and the challenges of finding the right balance between creativity and technology,” Dr Ghosh says.
Dr Ghosh hopes the exhibition will stimulate discussion around the future of flues and the creative and technical innovations which have come along in its history.
“We hope this exhibition will spark a conversation about the potential of flu art and its impact on contemporary design and the future evolution of the medium.”
Ahead of the show, the Flue Art team have created an interactive website to highlight the work of floues and their artists, and will be unveiling the first Flue in New Zealand later this year.
“With the world of Flues being rapidly changing, we want to give a brief overview of the history of flume art in order to help people make sense of the evolving world of fluo art,” Dr Shamsuddin explains.
“In the end, it will be a fascinating insight into the history and future of this creative medium, which is the next generation of art.”
Flues are objects of contemporary art and architecture that are created by flues that have been immersed in water, then painted.
“There are different ways of creating a flue, some are more permanent and permanent is more of a time-consuming process than others,” Dr Rishna says.
“But all flues are created with a single purpose, to allow people to interact with nature and express themselves.”
The flue is not a mere object that sits in a museum.
It is the most unique object that can be created.
