A privately commissioned permanent sculpture was installed on 27 May in a lake on a property on Queenstown. A helicopter was used to airlift the 600kg steel sculpture from Wanaka where it was built by engineering company Metalworks, and lower it into position.

“This large permanent work marks a development in my art practice which is concerned with the relationship between nature and culture. While continuing to make my signature ephemeral works I am also working on a number of other large scale pieces, both as commissions and for public exhibition,” says Martin Hill.
