To 24 Feb­ru­ary, Auck­land Art Gallery Toi o Tā­maki A solo ex­hi­bi­tion by Aotearoa’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the 2019 Venice Bi­en­nale, Auck­land­based artist Dane Mitchell, fo­cuses on scent pro­duc­tion – from tra­di­tional Ja­panese in­cense to con­tem­po­rary fra­grance tech­nolo­gies – and probes the en­tan­gle­ment of our senses, specif­i­cally the oc­u­lar and the ol­fac­tory. The multi-part in­stal­la­tion, cu­rated as a joint project be­tween the Auck­land Art Gallery and Mori Art Mu­seum in Tokyo, ex­am­ines the di­verse mean­ings of iris; a plant, a body part, an ad­justable aper­ture on a cam­era and a god­dess in Greek mythol­ogy. Mitchell is renowned for his ex­plo­ration of the in­vis­i­ble or un­seen forces at play in daily lives. auck­lan­dart­gallery.com
