Photo: JASON OXENHAM By RHIANNON HORRELL Award-winning: Dan Arps' installation piece, titled Explaining Things, has won him $50,000 and the chance to showcase it at the Saatchi and Saatchi headquarters in New York. It may seem like a bunch of chairs and objects in a room but Dan Arps installation is a rich tapestry of art which has seen him win this year s Walters Prize. The prestigious contemporary art award from the Auckland Art Gal- lery is given to New Zealand artists who have made an outstanding con- tribution to the visual arts. Mr Arps piece, titled Explaining Things, went on display in Decem- ber 2008 and he is set to receive $50,000 and a chance to exhibit at the Saatchi and Saatchi head- quarters in New York. The 34-year-old, whose studio is in the central city, says the project is about trying to get a handle on how knowledge is produced and it works via the way it activates the space. It s how we understand things and communicate. Everything is a bit misleading -- the table was found under a pile of food waste at a Karangahape Rd takeaway bar. It s a space where people can come to discuss things and have a conversation. The installation incorporates a sculpture on a plinth, a plasma lamp, an ornament, a wire coat hanger and a table and chairs, and Mr Arps says it didn t take long to create. It was pulled together in a week. I find a lot of things on the street. I make things look like they ve just been found. These things come from some- where else. They exist in a fictional sense. It s fictional and real at the same time. It operates as a dialogue in space. Mr Arps says the installation is also based on a model of knowledge at different subconscious levels. International judge and former Tate Modern director Vicente Todoli says there is a transformative power to Mr Arps vision. Dan s alchemical display involves all our senses. Reversing Jules Verne s story Around the World in 80 Days, we could say that his installation takes us on a metaphorical trip around the day in 80 worlds. The Central Leader would like your feedback on Mr Arps installation. Email your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr Arps is also participating in a free public exhibition, A Rock That Was Taught It Was A Bird, which runs until November 20 at Artspace onKRd. Squash players win nationals By SCOTT MORGAN There were plenty of reasons to celebrate at the Eden Epsom Squash Club recently, with three of its junior players winning national titles. Ellie Epke won the under-15 girls title, Anthony Lepper won the under-11 boys section and Anna Hughes secured the under- 13 girls crown at the junior squash nationals in Christchurch held during September and Octo- ber. It was an awesome effort -- national titles are pretty hard to get, club coach and former world champion Carol Owens says. She says the success of her three proteges comes as no sur- prise. They re all from families who play regularly. She says the success is a reflec- tion of the club s junior pro- gramme. We have roughly between 60 and 80 kids down here on a Friday night. The success of Owens former student Joelle King, who won a gold and silver medal at the Com- monwealth Games, has also inspired the youngsters. Many of the junior members of the club went to meet the squash team at the airport on their return from Delhi. It s quite inspirational for them and good for the sport s pro- file here, Owens says. Owens says Epke s performance at the tournament was particu- larly impressive, with a the 12-year-old taking on players two years her senior in the under-15 division. Mother Teresa tribute Reaching out to people of all faiths is one of the many reasons Mother Teresa is revered as a great leader of the 20th century. The recently formed Mother Teresa Com- memorative Council is honouring her work and life with a function this Sunday. The commemorative ceremony will be held at Christ the King Church, Mt Roskill and led by Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanand. Council chairman Wenceslaus Anthony says one of the reasons for the get-together is to remember Mother Ter- esa reached out to all people, no matter their religion or community. Her humble and dedicated care of the dying, the unwanted, the lonely and those who were desperately poor is legendary and is a legacy that continues to this day, Mr Anthony says. The council is formed from members of Christ- ian, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Sikh com- munities from around the Auckland region. The function takes place at 3pm on Sunday. Contact Mr Anthony for further details, 834- 0171 and 027-483-3676.
