I went to see the art installation GhostPaper , by Jack Trolove, at Toi Poneke yesterday.
If you live in Wellington and haven’t been yet – go!
It’s an incredibly engaging and intelligent consideration of a construction of pakeha identity. It felt like a very rich and layered gift .
On the back of the booklet `Thoughts on being an unsettled settler’ that was produced to go with the installation, the artist thanks her sponsors- CORSO, The Quakers Peace Fund, The Sweet As…? Conference, Wellington City Creative NZ Communities and ARC. Good on them, but I do think it’s wrong that an artist that is giving such an important gift to her community should have to scrabble around for funding.
