Amy Howden-Chapman is a Wellington-based artist and writer, and a member of the performance duo Raised by Wolves with Biddy Livesey. Her practice spans performance, often including collaborations with individuals or as in the case of Save the Whale/The Great Pacific Ocean Rubbish Patch Recreation (2006) with over eighty people when she attempted to re-create the mysterious phenomenon known as the North Pacific Gyre — a massive swirling whirlpool of ocean waste in the North Pacific ocean. Her installations, text-based and photographic works also address pressing environmental concerns and complexities of the urban realm, retaining a gleeful curiosity and an absurdist character.

 

Amy Howden-Chapman was born in Wellington in 1984 and currently lives in Mt Victoria, Wellington. Her work has been included in group exhibitions such as As Far As I Know, High Street Project, Christchurch (2007); Artists Film Festival, New Zealand Film Archive, Wellington (2007); An Introduction to the Theory of Everything Michael Hirschfeld Gallery, City Gallery Wellington (2006); A Brief History of Time, The Engine Room, Massey University, Wellington (2006); Old Habits Die Hard, Norwich Gallery, UK and Kunstnernes Hus, Olso, Norway 2005), organized by Sparwasser Gallery, Berlin, Germany and ETA, Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington (2004). Solo projects include Wall Wall, Kiosk (organized by The Physics Room), Christchurch (2007) and The Story of Three Sentences, Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington (2004). Recent Raised By Wolves performances include Strange Parade & The Gift of Hills (with accompanying publication After Leaving the Wilderness), Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne (2007); Mall wall talk task bask bark park, in Moment Making: After the Situation, ARTSPACE, Auckland (2007), and Swimming Stories, Enjoy Public Art Gallery, Wellington.
