In the summer of 2015 we were invited, along with ten other artists by DOC to take part in an extraordinary art and conservation residency in Dusky Sound, Fiordland. The journey, the wilderness environment, the experiences and the friendships we shared were significant to us.
We chose to spend a week working alone on Resolution Island. Two of the resultant environmental sculpture photographs and a video are now part of the touring exhibition Tamatea – Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound which is to be officially launched in Invercargill: Southland Museum and Art Gallery, 17 December 2016 – February 19 2017.
Tamatea – Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound has been developed by DOC in partnership with Te Rūnanga o Ōraka Aparima, and is supported by the New Zealand National Parks and Conservation Foundation.
