Last year our Year 11 Art students participated in an exciting collaboration with artist Kate Parker which culminated in the production of an installation of our students’ prints suspended in a large two metre high box. This work is currently on display at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland as part of a large exhibition titled: ‘I am Island and Sea’. Lightboxes glow, the Earth speaks, and the voices of Tāmaki Makaurau’s young people guide you through this wonderous exhibition by our students, artist Kate Parker and students from five other Auckland schools.
The Kaupapa of the exhibition is focused on the urgent plight of our environment, particularly some of our own native environments. It focusses on seabirds, endangered creatures and environments that need our attention. Our Year 11 Art students researched images and ideas, then produced original lino prints and dry point etchings to address this issue.
We hope you can make it as it is well worth a visit. You can find out more about this exhibition by clicking here.
