Local curator Sally Lush is again curating the third Harbourview Sculpture Trail on Te Atatu Peninsula showing Saturday March 5 to Easter Monday March 28. .
The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is now one of the most anticipated sculpture shows in Auckland’s art calendar. Held in a unique environment, 35 pieces of site-specific designed artwork will be set around ponds, native flax and bush within an untouched paradise nestled on Te Atatu Peninsula. The natural environment is pitched against a backdrop of stunning harbour and Auckland city views.
The 35 selected art works have responded to the site and environmental issues that relate to this area.
Many of the works are collaborative in nature involving local people in sourcing the materials for some works and a collaborative work by Simon Gray You say Hola, I say Hello - (Listening Device) that reaches through the centre of the earth to a small village in Spain. Simon’s collaboration involves children from Rutherford High School on Te Atatu Peninsula and children from the Spanish village in communication with each other. Come and listen for yourself.
Jeff Thomson a Helensville local has created a delicate series of wire works that spin and twirl on the water, called sway in collaboration with Bev Goodwin.
Artists and sculptures were selected by a panel that included Andrew Clifford Director of Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, Monique Redmond Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader of Visual Arts at AUT and Harbourview Sculpture Trail Curator Sally Lush.
The Harbourview Sculpture Trail at Harbourview Peoples Park, Te Atatu Peninsula, Auckland is open daily from Saturday 5 March to Monday 28 March 2016.  For more details, visit www.harbourviewsculpture.com
