Park Up

Oct 22 2020 - Mar 21 2021

Te Manawa Museum of Art, Science and History, Palmerston North


On an elevated site above the Manawatū River is Te Motu o Poutoa, known also as Anzac Park but generally referred to by a different name: Pork Chop Hill.

In 1998, photographer Catherine Russ completed Pork Chop, a project documenting the steady stream of visitors to the car-park there. Now, more than twenty years later, she returns with follow-up exhibition Park Up.

“It’s a place with many stories to tell,” says Russ. Photographed at various times of day and night over the summer of 2019 -2020, this new series of portraits capture a colourful and candid slice of life.
