I Like Your Form – Artist’s Talk

I Like Your Form Artist’s Talk, Sat 25 Oct 10.15am

Lonnie Hutchinson

The Commons, corner of Durham St & Kilmore St
Saturday 25 October, 10.15am

Join Lonnie Hutchinson beneath her striking artwork for an artist’s talk. Suspended from The Arcades Project, this temporary artwork transforms both the landmark and the entire site. Take in the magnificent 50 metre long hinaki (eel trap).

Lonnie’s work will be specially lit throughout FESTA and will remain at The Commons throughout FESTA and beyond.

I Like Your Form by artist Lonnie Hutchinson responds to FESTA’s invitation to intervene in The Arcades Project, temporarily transforming this landmark work of transitional architecture.

The work, a giant hinaki or eel trap 50 metres long, shifts and expands not only the Arcades but the entire site. It brings to the forefront traditions, uses and cultural significance that might otherwise be overlooked in the hectic daily construction and repair activity that now marks the central city.

Come down and see I Like Your Form at 70 Kilmore St, Ōtautahi, Christchurch, until mid-October 2014.
