Snakeskin Boot
Ella Scott Fleming

In fashion when they ask you about your mood board they say “who’s your “girl”?”. My “girl” is me in different projected fantasy worlds. My “girl” has dyed hair, she wears cowboy boots and leather or leopard print pants. She has a tramp stamp and she’s slutty with pencil thin eyebrows. She’s my baby sitter in the 90s and her hair smells like apples. She loves Leonardo Dicaprio, Britney Spears, and The Backstreet Boys.… Continue

i think a lot about how i killed them 

// Thursday 25 August – Saturday 10 September 2016
// Opening Wednesday 24 August, 6pm

i think a lot about how i killed them is an archive of objects, video, sound and numerical data, that have all originated from two trees which were planted together, fifteen years ago. Transformation machines have extracted this information from the trees. They continuously change the state of them, in the way of cutting, burning, measuring and re-articulating their physical properties. In the death of their original state, the machines ensure that they are always simultaneously living and dying; their architectural information is now gone, but a fuzz of documented information still allows them to exist.… Continue

‘Untitled’ VAR Program Analysis (Disconnected Correspondence)

This project is made up of three parts, starting in Wellington on the 13th of April 2016, moving to San Francisco on the 1st of May – 30th of June (Varda artists residency program). The third part of the project will continue during my RM Gallery research residency from the 14th – 30th of July, where I aim to hold two public programs, develop a publication of this research, and a proposal for an exhibition of outcomes.


  1.  The initial interaction exploration utilised an inclusive silent correspondence exercise where participants contributed physical evidence of their interaction onto provided material with provided material.
  2. Continue

A bone a flesh

Was I Human? The Human is a normative category that indexes access to power… somebody that is implicitly assumed to be masculine, white, urbanized, speaking a standard language, heterosexually inscribed in a reproductive unit, and a full tax paying citizen of a recognized polity… So Posthuman, very welcome! What a chance for those who were not Human to begin with … Of course, it is not that simple.

Fuck Me 3

FUCK ME is an ongoing project exploring the relationship between sex and capitalism through the mediums of writing and performance. FUCK ME aspires to be a mutable, independent and inclusive platform that allows for a self-initiated politicising of our bodies and identities. As the title suggests, FUCK ME is both an exclamation and an invitation, an avenue for us to express our discontent and initiate our collective hopes and desires.

This iteration of FUCK ME begins from an interrogation of ideas pertaining to excess and marks an expansion of the project’s preliminary focus upon orality, embracing film and print.… Continue

Star circuit : Heart circuit
Events within Boundaries

// Opening, Wednesday 8 June, 6pm

// Thursday 9 June – Saturday 25 June 2016

Events within Boundaries is a site and calendar specific installation that materialized during a 7 day informal studio residency Smuts-Kennedy undertook at RM during Matariki 2015.

It continues her inquiry into the potential for geometric form to function as site-specific tools for investigating the qualities of space.

Smuts-Kennedy’s practice is focused on a research based investigation into fields of energy as they engage with conceptual thinking both within an art based language and other intuition driven modes of enquiry.… Continue

Empathy and Abstraction

//Opening Wednesday 18 May, 6pm

// Thursday 19 May – Saturday 4 June 2016

Empathy and Abstraction presents an iteration of a body of work that began with the idea of starting a collection — an interest in the greatness of the mundanity involved in this process of accumulation which is an easy-going, on-going, everyday activity. The resulting images are traces of a series of moments – moments of quiet that are not typically looked forward to or remembered but nevertheless form a technical calendar. The images have been conditioned to form an index in abstraction, tracing the distance from the moments themselves.… Continue

To eat a whole animal 2

// Opening, Wednesday 27 April, 6pm

// Thursday 28 April – Saturday 14 May 2016


To eat a whole animal, a Painting exhibition

To eat whole animal explores the complexities of teaching and of learning to paint. These paintings are the by-products of a series of rigidly representational portraits, outsiders used to clean brushes, isolate gestures, or indulge in the sensuality of the medium. Through the intuitive process of mark making, they create their own language of instruction and redefine the initial criteria for success.

Though the original series is not present in the exhibition, traces of the gestures and lines within it emerge throughout these subsiduary paintings.… Continue
