Captain Cook at Parekowhai’s Lighthouse

A rather subdued Captain Cook at Michael Parekowhai’s Lighthouse.
Perhaps he’s pondering the the state of Auckland’s State housing or just why he’s been locked up…
The sculpture of Captain Cook by Michael Parekowhai is called “The english Channel”

On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer

On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer

A stunning sculptural installation by New Zealand artist Michael Parekowhai:
“On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer”.
It was New Zealand’s entry to the Venice Biennale 2011.
It is  currently exhibited in an empty lot in front of the NG Gallery in Christchurch, a haunting setting amidst the destruction and reconstruction work going around to rebuild the city after the earthquakes.
