When bags move like ballerinas

The Team from Auckland Museum

Ballerinas twist, turn and move so gracefully that they often seem other-worldly, but would you ever compare a ballerina to a bag?

In our Carried Away: Bags Unpacked exhibition, artist Isaac Katzoff’s glass bag got itself a nickname of just that: the ballerina. The nickname was given after the … View more
Ballerinas twist, turn and move so gracefully that they often seem other-worldly, but would you ever compare a ballerina to a bag?

In our Carried Away: Bags Unpacked exhibition, artist Isaac Katzoff’s glass bag got itself a nickname of just that: the ballerina. The nickname was given after the bag hinted at graceful movement while it was under the spotlight in the photography studio - it's inner performer was at the ready.

Although the Museum holds many objet d’art (art objects), the beautiful photography and images of the collection are themselves works of art, as this image of Katzoff's bag here is. Museum photographers work behind the scenes to create images of objects that act as both documentation and art.

As Artweek Auckland comes to a close this weekend, we wanted to showcase just one of many of the wonderful objet d'art from within our Applied Arts & Design collection.

Come and see 'the ballerina' for yourself, alongside many other wonderful works of art at Carried Away: Bags Unpacked, on now and free with Museum entry.

I Met a True Karen Sunday at the Titirangi Gas Station

Happened on Sunday, 13 October.

I had just dropped my son off at a birthday party and needed to gas up prior to heading out for a run with a group of friends a few hours later. I pulled into the gas station in the village at Titirangi. If you aren't familiar with it, there are two pumps. They allow two on the left and two on the right. If you use the left-hand side, you have a bit of a sharp right-hand turn to get out and back onto Titirangi Rd.

I stopped at the front pump on the right-hand side. I shut off the engine, popped the fuel cover, unbuckled, and opened the door. I went to the pay station. Enter Karen.

Karen came up to me and said "You need to move your car back so I can get out when I'm done". I looked at her little car, looked at the amount of room and replied that there was plenty of space. She said, "No, you need to move!". I replied that there was plenty of space.

While I was trying to do the pre-pay, she tried to remove my card from the machine. Rather than smack her, I put my hand in the way so that she couldn't remove my card. She hit my hand, but, since she is about 5' 4, she knew that she was not going to force me to move my hand (Legally, she assaulted me).

I proceeded to process the payment at the pay station to get ready to fill up. Karen then said that I was lucky that her child was in the car. I asked "Or what?". She said "I assumed that you would move". I replied "I assumed you could drive".

She said "Then I'll hit your car". I replied "And I'll take a picture". She then used the F word about eight times - In front of her child. She even said "You don't know who you're F-ing with". (Which made me think that she is a government employee) I said, "I don't care who you are - there's plenty of room".

Once Karen was done fueling up, she pulled around and tried to get as close to my car as possible. She then stopped, opened her door and said "Look, there's not even 20 centimeters on this side!", I stepped to the left and said "And a meter and half on the other side".

I bet she's a single mom. Because there's no way anyone would put up with her after a few weeks.

Oh, little blue car. If you know her, keep your distance - she's unstable. Sure, she could have been having a bad day and was on edge. But it wasn't even 10:30 AM. She didn't need to make her problems my problems.

Incidentally, after she drove off an SUV pulled in to where she had just been. I asked the driver "If he was done fueling before me, would he be able to get around?". He said "Sure, no problem".

Apologies to anyone named Karen.

This expansive home and super-sized property offer the ultimate retreat complete with beautiful bush, lots of lawn and an elevated, sunny position.

A spacious entry welcomes you, and the view, through to the living room and beyond while the wrap around floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in and flood the space with light. Although already a generous space, the 'sunken' sitting area also gives a cosy and intimate feel.

Catering to even the largest of dinner parties, the adjacent formal dining flows seamlessly through to the second living area and the open plan kitchen. This space has a heat pump and woodburner to keep you cosy or cool and connects to a partially enclosed deck area for all weather entertaining.

The kitchen has everything you could want with stone benchtops, separate hob, double wall oven and an enormous walk in pantry or scullery.

A large bedroom, currently used as a study, occupies the lower level. There is also a powder room with laundry and internal access to the garage.

Upstairs there are three further bedrooms. The master boasts a walk in robe, heat pump and ensuite. A large family bathroom has a separate shower and bath and dual access from one of the bedrooms and the hall. Large picture windows place you soaring above the treetops.

With over 3,569 square metres of land (more or less) you can secure your own private paradise. People are drawn to Waiatarua for its natural beauty, close proximity to beautiful beaches, while being an easy commute to the CBD.

This is the ultimate choice for a more peaceful lifestyle - one that you will never regret!

We look forward to seeing you at the open homes or please call us to make a time to view privately.
