TO OUR NEXT OPENING NIGHT EXHIBITION

However much we are social animals, the sense of self and the need for boundaries between ourselves and the people around us are fundamental to the human condition. If we cease to exist as individuals can we honestly say that we are human?

In The Distance Between Us, Hawke’s Bay-based artist Shelley Masters explores those more intimate moments of separation from the people we share our lives with.

Some are the bizarre out of body experiences when we see our place in the world from an almost voyeuristic perspective. Others are more clearly participational, the private moments when our focus expands to show our family members, friends and partners in a wider frame from which we ourselves are absent.

There are stories here, or at least episodes within stories. The beginning of something unstated, the end of something else. The frantic snapshot of a family in action. A conversation half over-heard. All are quintessentially human stories. They’re about the things we do, the way we interact with others and the way we assert our sense of self. Not to others, but to ourselves. 

The one common factor to all these – nobody touches.

That is the distance between us.
