Prairie, Sam and Heidi talk to Nicola Farquhar about the ecstatic biology of the one and the many. You can check out an example of how this plays out in her painting at Listening, Twitching, currently on at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery. Next we continue the thread of ecstasy as John Walter joins us and we discuss what happens when a virus walks into a bar. His work in Queer Algorithms, now showing at Gus Fisher Gallery, approaches the biology of HIV with a tragicomedic lens.

Heidi and Prairie catch up with museum curator, Tharron Bloomfield and baber Marnie Pou Te Rata. As a museum curator, perhaps taking more of a view of what a practice and its objects tell us about a culture and our world, we talk about Marnie's barbering practice and the adventures it has led to, including a stint with a business in The Netherlands, as a living artform.

Leilani Kake is starting a series of hui where people can practise their reo Maaori without too much formality, lubricating their arero with wine and cheeses, and discussing the artworks at Vunilagi Vou. Te Reo Toitoko, it's called, playing on toi: art, and tautoko: support. Gallery founder, Ema Tavola is also here, chiming in to make sure we've all got the crucial info we need about how to get there.
(First one kicks off on Thursday Jan 23 at Vunilagi Vou, 4/256 Great South Road, Otahuhu)

Next Lesley Dixon tells us about the journeys in and out of collaboration and connection her otherwise practice in solitude in large-scale sand drawing has taken her on, and the many ways in which other people have become involved at times.

Heidi chats to Julia Morison about body horror, tenderness and the remarkable coherence that results from quite non-linear processes, and then continues a trajectory with Yonel Watene from his previous interview about the Te Tuhi show, to a bit of background and how residencies in Mexico spurred on artistic evolution.  And Tom throws in a wee word from the lower East side of NYC, joined by Andrew Penya to tell us about the Parlay Project.

Heidi is joined by Kirstin Carlin and Melanie Roger. Kirstin has broadened her usual practice as an artist to guest curating the delectable 'Icecream Salad' at Melanie's gallery, bringing together a community of painters from a vast array of dealer stables. And then Artbank goes nepotism, with Heidi phoning Tom Tuke himself as he resides at Karekare Residency House, sharing the mishaps and hilarity of his rehearsals for his first puppet show 'Paloma and the Do of Death'.
