Heard Ledges

Artwork

This installation was made for the White Night Parnell, part of the Auckland Arts Festival 2015. Small black cardboard boxes mounted under Heard Park’s bench seating.

35mm slides showing composite images of architectural detail and historic shop names, cardboard boxes, electrical components.

Tiny lightboxes depicting Parnell’s past.

Black Cat Takeaways, Gaslight and Aunt Agatha’s Table Things are just a few of the shop names resurrected for this installation. The architectural details shown in the photographs are from buildings which have all lived through Parnell’s historic and recent past.
