Becky Nunes: 36S-174E
08 March 2014 - 13 July 2014
Auckland-based photographer Becky Nunes explores notions of tapu in relation to the civic and commercial use of land and natural resources in New Zealand. In particular she considers the use of Auckland's sacred maunga as sites for utilities such as reservoirs and survey markers or land to be mined for volcanic rock. Her ambiguous black-and-white images of Mt Wellington frame evidence of human construction and imply a latent spiritual unease.
