From Pillars to Posts: Project Another Country

  Mon 30 Apr 2018 to Sun 16 Sep 2018
Auckland Art Gallery

Free with Gallery entry.

From Pillars to Posts: Project Another Country is the latest participatory artwork commissioned for the Gallery’s Todd Foundation Creative Learning Centre.

Dreamed up by artists and husband-and-wife team Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, the installation explores community, family, relocation and homemaking, and is part of an ongoing series of site-specific projects by the artists that use art making to prompt conversations about what makes a home.

Using recycled cardboard boxes to create a model city, the artists invite collaboration by providing materials for Gallery visitors to produce their own small cardboard houses, which will be amassed into the installation.
