“Along with composition and media, artists explore scale when realising their ideas.”
This selection of large artworks from the Te Manawa collection spans sculpture, ceramics, assemblage, photography, painting, stitched and drawn works. From the global vision of John Bevan Ford to the mournful detail of Fiona Pardington’s photograph, the artists here seek to confront, reveal and immerse you in their creative world through scale.
Artworks of this size present a unique challenge to conservators. They demand a lot of storage space, and the processes of caring for them are complicated by dimensions that stretch beyond the reach of an arm. Open daily from 10am – Free admission.
Nau mai, haere mai – Open daily.
General admission is free – donations welcome. 0800-4-A-MUSEUM.
