Pilvi Takala's video installation Drive With Care is included in an exhibition Share / Cheat / Unite at The Physics Room Contemporary Art Space in Christchurch, New Zealand. The exhibitions runs from 2 September until 8 October, 2017. Other participating artists are: Gemma Banks, Yu Cheng-Chou, Sasha Huber, Anibal Lopez (A-1 53167), Chim↑Pom, and Johnson Witehira

For Drive with Care, Takala investigated the life of a teacher at an elite boarding school in the U.S. The artist examines the boundaries within this particular community by re-staging significant moments with a necessary dry humour. The project explores strategies for survival, as faculty members in the school also negotiate their own space within the institution, finding loopholes, places to breathe, whilst being careful not to violate shared rules.

Share / Cheat / Unite is a collaborative exhibition between Te Tuhi and The Physics Room Contemporary Art Space. Featuring international and New Zealand-based artists, the exhibition delves into the human psyche to consider how altruism, cheating, and group formation play a key role in shaping society, but not necessarily in the ways we might assume.

Based in central Christchurch since 1996, The Physics Room is a contemporary art space dedicated to developing and promoting contemporary art and critical discourse in Aotearoa New Zealand.
