Dulcie Stewart outside Roop ki Rani where her work is just visible in the first floor window.
The lovely Christine Mercer, manager of the Otahuhu Recreation and Youth Centre! We’re so grateful that we were allowed to take the posters beyond the street facing window to the internal spaces too – vinaka vakalevu!
Lovely staff member at Roti’s Corner, Food City Ethnic Food Court.
The skux dudes at Red Rat! Thanks Rocky and crew!!
And Star Hotel, where we will be having a well-deserved beer after the show comes down next week!
Watch this space for more installation photos!
Luisa Tora’s 1998 large-scale painting, “These Boots Were Made For Walking” was the inspiration for designer Nicole Lim in creating the DIASPORADIC679 crest for the exhibition’s publication. Based on the Fiji passport design, the new crest replaces the Fiji Islands Coat of Arms. In an ideal world, the front over of the exhibition publication would be thick ‘Fiji blue’ card with the text and crest embossed in gold. In our budget conscious world, it will be… the next best thing!
Vinaka again Luisa for your inspiration and GREAT work Nicole Lim!
