Exhibition 2007 – 2008

Inaugural exhibition 2007 -2008

From the curatorial team

“…Our curatorial approach to this exhibition was not to look for any theme or connecting thread between the sculptures – instead we wanted works which would respond innovatively to the gardens themselves.  The Auckland Botanic Gardens encompasses a great variety of moods and spaces and as a result all the sculptors have found sites which suit their vision of the work – among flowers or endangered plants; near stands of trees or native bush; on or beside water or on wide green lawns…”
