All That Was Solid Melts takes us on a journey from isolation through the multiple anxieties of life and catastrophe, something New Zealanders are particularly familiar with, and along the way offers moments of historical sympathy, solace, and discovery. When, finally, we step beyond the itinerary we will have travelled through metaphors and emotions, realising that we too are simply passing through time, which is but a small moment in a longer plan; that we are but a spec in the cosmos; that things come before and will come after our moment; that we will be deconstructed to reconstruct ourselves.
Joined by historical works of significance from Auckland Art Gallery’s collection, including the stunning etchings of Giovanni Battista Piranesi, and pieces from modernist Paul Nash, this is a rich trans-historical exhibition curated by Senior Curator Global Contemporary Art, Juliana Engberg.
