plays with the veracity of the image and the life, his life, that it depicts.
In the exhibition we see the artist’s son Leo posing in a rainbow wig.
Recognised internationally as one the twentieth century’s great modernist innovators, New Zealand artist Len Lye is most famous for his avant-garde experimental films and for his astonishing and playful kinetic sculptures.
Always fascinated by the interplay of movement and light, this extraordinary artist also expressed himself in photography drawing, painting and poetry.
This exhibition features the signature Lye film 1950, which was commissioned by the UN to publicise United Nations Day (24th October) and screened worldwide in cinemas and on television. The exhibition is produced with the support of the Len Lye Foundation, the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery | Len Lye Centre and Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision.The Len Lye Foundation will also launch a new book at the opening - edited by Paul Brobbel, Wystan Curnow and Roger Horrocks, and published by Canterbury University Press.In another work he is lip-synching in film as a film clip for Ariana Grande. We see his middle child Olympia contorting herself in a gymnastic pose on a zebra skin.Like Leo, she is acting - or as Zavros would have it, this is role-play in Dad’s curious fiction. This is the artist’s eldest daughter Phoebe, the subject of many earlier Zavros ‘self portraits’.
