Opening Saturday 13th May, Craig in conversation with Kim Paton, Objectspace Director at 1.30pm, then refreshments form 2-4pm.
Within our ever-developing landscape of the past two years of multiple lockdowns, along with a polarising debate surrounding freedoms, the need to alter our way of operating on the land, due to the stark realities of climate change, has been highlighted.Our notions and ideas surrounding place move ever more to the forefront. Overlay this with our complex history of colonisation. The reading of landscape within Aotearoa then becomes an ever-increasing complex area to negotiate. The intention of Manufactured Topographies is not about attempting to dictate about subjective right or wrongs, but to provoke reflection surrounding the framing of landscape and place within the current and future terrain constructed within Aotearoa New Zealand.
Craig McIntosh’s Manufactured Topographies is a stunning installation of a map in stone, divided into 72 individual sculptural postcard size portions.
