Nicholas Mangan, from the forthcoming exhibition 'Nauru, Notes from a Cretaceous World'

Leg of Lamb is off to Kiwiland, so don’t expect many (if any) posts this week.  If you’re in Auckland on Friday the 5th of November, make sure you head along to the opening of new commercial space Hopkinson Cundy featuring work by Melbourne artist Nick Mangan.

Nick Mangan, Nauru, Notes from a Cretaceous World, Hopkinson Cundy, 1/1 Cross Street, Auckland, until December 4.

Happy Halloween, spooks!

Matthew Barney’s Cremaster 1, now on Playstation

Fluxlasers has made a Playstation game based on Matthew Barney’s 1995 film Cremaster 1. Created with PS3’s Little Big Planet, the game includes Cremaster staples such as fetishised shoes, Goodyear blimps and carefully synchronised grapes. Given that Barney was reluctant for these films to be exhibited anywhere other than cinemas, Leg of Lamb wonders what he’ll make of this bastardized Cremaster appearing on screens the world over.
