See full details
An installation that simulates a caged protest site; a method of police crowd control named 'kettling'. The site is demarcated on the floor with grey render and littered with the detritus of contemporary consumerism; an eccletic mix of internationally produced commodities along with 'found' objects such as New Zealand produced wool blankets and shorts made in China and printed with a Maori pattern. These are interspersed with sculptures made by the artist. Three office chairs are used to hold banners, which feature images related to natural selection sourced from internet.
Dimensions: 0 - Whole: 3125 x 4000 x 6000mm
Purchased in 2013 with the 10 x 10 Acquisition Fund and with assistance of the artist and Michael Lett, Auckland
