We are still collecting names for this post and should have traced everyone by tomorrow ……

It was a night like no other. And that is saying something because there has been a few – as social pages readers will know well. After a slow start with the Southern Arts Hub opening night in competition – party people from Sydney and Canberra came together in a moment of divine confluence. Kiwi legend Shane Cotton who is in Canberra doing a project with the Australia War Memorial / Megalo also dropped in …  The last three shows of the year Video: Music Timothy D, One Hung Bitch : Volume II Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran and Finding Ghosts Tracey Benson open in the delightfully volatile atmosphere of work that focuses on technology and sex, sometimes both at once. Imagine an opening where anonymous figures perform masturbation rituals for a gallery audience on the Internet, a gallery of out there ceramics that celebrate the penis and the picture starts to take form. Add to this Tracey Benson’s fascinating encounter with the ghosts of  Karangahape Road in Auckland and the image sharpens. The camera was handed around, lost and found – everyone it seems photographed each other, posed together, air kissed and hugged in an orgy of mutual admiration.
