Event Details


Join Te Atamira for an in depth exploration of new installation, Stone Moves, with Curator of Art at Hocken Collections, Hope Wilson.

Delve into the remarkable schist exhibition in the Whakaari gallery, Stone Moves, with Curator of Art at Hocken Collections, Hope Wilson. Unpack the layers of geological, botanical and cultural history embedded in Miranda Bellamy and Amanda Fautuex’s installation of this much loved local stone.   

Miranda Bellamy and Amanda Fauteux’s installation Stone Moves unfolds the stories held within schist. The layers embedded in each rock trace millennia of powerful metamorphic forces; its familiar built forms trace the movement of people, plants and capital.  ‍
This talk is part of the public programme for Stone Moves.
