World's Edge

6 October 2006 - 25 February 2007

In World's Edge, New Zealand artists set their sights on one of the most familiar and elusive landscape images – the horizon. In Colin McCahon's five-part evocation of the Ahipara coast, an earthbound beachwalk becomes a spiritual journey. Ralph Hotere's painted window from 1982 portrays the horizon as the backdrop for urgent environmental protest. In Anne Noble's 'whiteout' photographs made in Antarctica, the horizon is a place where whiteout threatens and vision is pushed to its limits. The exhibition includes work by Laurence Aberhart, Maddie Leach, Kathryn Madill, Maria Olsen, Peter Peryer and Marie Shannon.
