Artists Matt Henry and Emil McAvoy discuss the ideas behind the works in Long Division

This opening weekend, Matt Henry is joined in his exhibition by fellow artist Emil McAvoy to discuss the ideas behind the works.

In his new exhibition Long Division, Henry who was raised in New Plymouth, responds to the architecture of the Govett-Brewster galleries. Following major renovations and the addition of the Len Lye Centre, Henry is rediscovering the spaces that were once so familiar to him.
