Bio­chemist dab­bles in de­sign

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Bio­chemist-cum-artist Craig Hil­ton doesn’t re­strict his cre­ative en­deav­ours to the lab­o­ra­tory, he also likes to dab­ble in de­sign.

Dr Hil­ton, along with pain­ter An­drew McLeod, is ex­hibit­ing The Sick­ness Show at the Au­dio Foun­da­tion in the city.

It is a tongue-in-cheek look at chronic fa­tigue syn­drome.

Mr McLeod is a pain­ter, dig­i­tal artist and textile maker and has been af­flicted with the con­di­tion for seven years.

The Mt Eden artist had booked in a show at the foun­da­tion be­cause of the ‘‘good cul­ture there’’, and in­vited Dr Hil­ton to join him.

‘‘A lot of things came to­gether that re­ally am­pli­fied the ge­nius hi­lar­ity of the idea,’’ Mr McLeod says. ‘‘Craig is a con­cep­tual artist and con­cep­tual art is a gag based on ideas which is what sci­ence is all about, ideas.’’

The two men are giv­ing a talk to­mor­row at the foun­da­tion, fol­lowed by a de­but per­for­mance by band The Vil­lage.

The Sick­ness Show is on at the Au­dio Foun­da­tion at 4 Poyn­ton Tce, un­til Septem­ber 29.
