“And the dance goes on …”

Marlyne Jackson is an Auckland-based artist whose work includes beautiful chandeliers constructed from found glassware, china and household objects (including tea-strainers, lampshades and colanders).

Marlyne has exhibited these chandeliers collectively as “And the Dance Goes On”, often hanging them in trees to be blown in the breeze. I filmed this clip one evening as the wind was beginning to pick up (heralding the arrival the next day of a terrible storm). Scottish folk band Capercaillie provided the soundtrack;  Dr MacPhail’s Reel.

… and the dance goes on

Video shot and edited by Su Leslie, 2014.

As NZ Sculpture OnShore was closing up last night, I shot a little bit of video of Auckland artist Marylene Jackson’s wonderful installation “… and the dance goes on.” Marlyne makes wonderful chandeliers from found objects. At the exhibtion, they are hung in trees. I found the sight of one of her works blowing in the wind totally hypnotic.
