Artists statement

The palace names suite celebrates the mana of the first naming of Southern places.
I wish to thank Southern iwi for their collaboration in this ongoing body of work. Some of these images have been made in support of protest groups such as “Artists Against Aqua”. This group opposed the destruction of the bottom of the Waitaki River by Meredian Energy.
The Lake Mahinerangi Tusck and Ice works are made in support of the current “Upland Landscape Protection Group” who are campaigning against the Trustpower and Meredian Energy proposals to use most of the ecologically special and sensitive Upland Otago tussock country to build the largest wind factories in the Southern Hemisphere.
The group consists of farmers, students, business people, artists, actors, writers, musicians and one All Black – Anton Oliver.
Wind factories, if they go ahead will obsolescent in 75 years. Upland tussock country will ever recover from devastation caused by building so many turbines in these sites, and this special part of New Zealand will be lost to our grandchildren.
