OBJECT CAVE - Art in the Dark.

As part of the annual event Art in the Dark, Bartleet has constructed an instillation piece which hung underneath a beautiful old tree at the top of Western Park in Ponsonby, Auckland, NZ. Visitors were invited to peer into the camouflaged wooden box through a hole underneath and surround themselves in thousands of real objects which are preserved in layers of resin and paint.

"Excuse me, Waiter there's a key in my desert" ArtDEGO

Here is something new and different. Alexander Bartleet was invited to participate in an event held at the Nathan Club where five chefs and five artists collaborate together and create a five course degustation with matching wines. Each course was created by a different chef and artist. It's not often you get to taste art.

In charge of Course five, dessert, was Brian Campbell head chef at the new Britomart dessert restaurant that’s set to open this summer. He collaborated with artist Alexander Bartleet to create a fantastic dessert which had various objects hidden within it. More images here thanks to photographer Laura Forest.
