Ulex vexillum @ The Sculpture Park



Gorse was once introduced by European settlers to New Zealand and quickly took over North Island much like the settlers themselves. Now regarded as a pest plant, the plant is readily removed from farms as well as the Sculpture Park.
A large gorse-dyed linen flag is suspended between two pine trees on the hill looking out to the Waikato plain. The setting incorporates the Waikato farmland as a borrowed scenery into the installation. Ulex vexillum breaches the boundary between the farm and arboretum, and extends the inquiries into the layers of human interventions to the park and beyond.

Ulex vexillum is a site-specific installation for the exhibition curated by Kim Paton for the Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum.

Drawing a Sea @ Art in the Dark 2011


Drawing a Sea is a site-specific light installation that traces an imaginary shoreline with string lights that will rest 40 metres above sea level on the ground of Western Park. This height set out for the lights reflects the highest rise of water (run-up) in sea-level recorded in a small cove in Miyako City in the recent Japanese tsunami.

Even with an abundance of video footage of the tsunami engulfing the land, it is hard to grasp what people actually went through on that day. The artist hopes that as the audience wander in and out of the surface of this imaginary tsunami, the incomprehensible will become comprehensible.

This project was made possible with supports from Art in the Dark 2011 team, La Lumiere who sponsored 450m string of lights, and Cameron, Tim & George who helped me setting out the height of the ground.
