The Solutions Project/The Body of the Land
Two catalogs in one!
This 1993 South Island Art Projects publication contains documentation
of two distinct projects, both based in Dunedin. The Body of the
Land/The Solutions Project linked a major arts institution, in the
form of the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, with a more marginal arts
structure, the artist run space Solutions, and presented artists
projects alongside a major symposium.
Engaging and interrogating notions of the land as a central cultural
icon in New Zealand, The Body of the Land investigated how traditional
ideas such as the southern mans heartland are
holding up under assault by contemporary views on post-colonialism
The catalog is presented with a front cover at each end, and profiles
projects by established artists Andrew Drummond, Pauline Rhodes,
and Stuart Griffiths, and a series of more emerging practitioners
Fleur Yorston, Michael Morley, Brendan Lee, Robyn Webster, and Low
Eng Teong and Simon Kaan. Excerpts and articles by forum speakers
including Wystan Curnow, Peter Robinson and Edward Ellison are included.
