From 15 August at the Govett Brewster Art Gallery in New Plymouth, TIFFANY SINGH creates a new site specific community-connected project using wind chimes to focus on the potency, energy and meanings of colour. Ancient cultural beliefs inform Auckland-based artist Tiffany Singh’s art practice, which explores the continuum between science, the natural environment, personal wellbeing and global consciousness.
For this project the Govett-Brewster Art galelry worked with Taranaki children who, in adorning each wind chime with the hues of the rainbow, created their own colour symbolism and wish for the community.
These 1001 bamboo wind chimes transform an open air cityscape into a sensory experience where people are surrounded by the colour and sound of the chimes hanging from a spectrum of ribbons, creating a vibrant large-scale instrument for the duration of the Taranaki International Arts Festival 2013.
Curated by Meredith Robertshawe, the project will take place outside between Devon St West and King St, opposite The Mayfair in New Plymouth, and will continue till 1 September.
