You’re trailing through a landscape of tumbling hills and crashing mountain faces with bag of Scroggin, a fanny pack and the dirt road for company. You spot a fellow traveller coming toward you on the otherwise uninterrupted, outdoor panorama. Your eyes meet theirs. You squint-smile joyously at each other with a sense of mutual understanding.

Desk Collection is a retrospective of Saskia Leek’s paintings currently at the Dowse in Lower Hutt. The name comes from the fact that every painting included in the exhibition could have been made at a desk; they average A4 in size. The paintings are intimate in subject as well as scale. Leek’s early paintings recall […]

Rust and Bone: The effervescent Marion Cotillard received considerable praise for her performance in this tale of a killer whale trainer who suffers a horrific accident, with Time pointing out that she “demonstrates again her eerie ability to write complex feelings on her face without grandstanding her emotions”.

Teaching Placement The first day in many I had not got this eyelash out of my eye was yellow-eveninged and not so wise that it did not become night in a matter of days which turned into a season, darkness trapped in forests growing amass of humanity, a plethora of eyelashes. My new sheets were […]

Where can you drink good beer in Wellington? For students on a budget, it’s usually best to drink at home, with a bottle or rigger, picked up fresh from the brewery, or from regional Wines & Spirits. On the other hand, if you’re not utterly crippled by student debt, you might like to drop into […]

Being back in the dirty South for Easter has meant two things: i) a renewed distaste for ‘scarfies’ and ii) cheese rolls.
