Built from materials diverted from landfill, respite is a place of rest installed at NZ Sculpture OnShore. it invites the foot-sore and tired to sit and rest, contemplate the view and enjoy a moment’s rest in manmade shade.
. It provides respite:
· for visitors to Fort Takapuna - in a ‘glade’ made from materials diverted from landfill.
· for our moana and whenua. The installation is a canopy of flowers made from milk bottles diverted from landfill. The seating is seat on furniture made from shopping trollies, upholstered with vinyl from billboards.
And, of course, Women's Refuge provides respite from family violence for women and their children.
First installed at NZ Sculpture OnShore in November 2018.
Reconfigured and installed at Splore Arts and Music Festival in February 2019.
