Where: Percy Thomson Gallery, Stratford
When: Friday 2 June, 12:30-1pm
Lunchtime floor talk with WITT Te Pukenga lecturer and Taranaki artist, Dr Elliot Collins. He will examine his works and many others included in our current exhibition 'Don't Judge a Book By Its' Cover; it may take you on another journey', NOW SHOWING AT PTG (5 May - 23 June).
Collins' works look at the ideas of the present/absent texts within memorials or 'memory markers' in Aotearoa NZ, as well as the motifs that represent a particular kind of identity-forming narrative.
"My practice draws reference to poetry and language".
Free event, all welcome.
The talk will likely run for approx. 30 minutes in the Gallery. We encourage you to ask questions throughout the talk.
