Mihi Kore-In Gratitude
Waitakaruru Sculpture Gardens
Waikato, New Zealand, 2011
Mihi Kore- ’In Gratitude’ was installed in the Waikato at Waitakaruru’s Sculpture garden as part of the summer show ‘Sky above, Earth below’ curated by Andrew Clifford. Waitakaruru is a magnificently transformed 17-hectare quarry that is now New Zealand’s largest sculpture garden.
Set against a backdrop of native ferns and forest Mihi Kore converses ancient patterns forged in adobe mud brick with earthly markings that sing to the sky above and the earth below.
