Opening Saturday March 11, 2017 4-6pm
Te Tuhi, Auckland
Te Tuhi presents In Transit (Arrival), a large-scale sculpture by artist Yona Lee that explores the structure and pulse of civilisation. This vast entangled structure, which you can walk through and sit within, is made of the stainless steel tube commonly used as barriers and handrails in train stations and airports around the world. Interwoven throughout the structure is a miscellany of everyday objects ranging from coat hangers to bus handles and from street signs to umbrellas. Through this elaborate construction, Lee provides an intriguing framework in which to consider the objects that surround us, the infrastructures that mobilise and the systems that control.
Te Tuhi CEO Hiraani Himona invites you to attend the opening of In Transit (Arrival) by Yona Lee from 4-6pm. The gallery will be open until 8pm for Te Tuhi’s Second Saturday Late Night. Stay to eat with us at the Pakuranga Night Markets.
Catch the free Art Bus to the opening
The Te Tuhi Art Bus will depart from Artspace, 300 Karangahape Road, at 3:30pm on Saturday 13 August. It returns from Te Tuhi at 6pm
