COMMISSIONED BY independent curator melanie oliver,
in association with Govett-Brewster Art Gallery

 


Liz Allan, Self portrait of the artist as a café worker, 2005

 

Liz Allan’s practice investigates notions of community, value and exchange. Allan’s interventions question everyday social interactions and networks, maintaining an open process that encourages consideration of the roles and relationships between the artist and their audience.

 

Born in Whangarei in 1978, Allan lives and works in Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Massey University, Wellington in 2003 and her work has since featured in numerous exhibitions, including most recently Telecom Prospect 2007: New Art New Zealand, City Gallery Wellington, 2007; Sister City, Blindside Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, 2006; and SCAPE 2006 Biennial of Art in Public Space, Christchurch, 2006. Allan also exhibited at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in 2005 as part of the exhibition Linked: connectivity and exchange.

 

In addition to her participation in ONE DAY SCULPTURE, Liz Allan is the 2008 Govett-Brewster Art Gallery New Zealand Artist in Residence, a partnership with the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki, supported by Creative New Zealand.
