Te Tuhi presents InTransit (Arrival), a large-scale sculpture by artist Yona Lee that explores the structure and pulse of civilisation. This vast entangled structure, which you can walk through and sit within, is made of the stainless steel tube commonly used as barriers and handrails in train stations and airports around the world. Interwoven throughout the structure is a miscellany of everyday objects ranging from coat hangers to bus handles and from street signs to umbrellas. Through this elaborate construction, Lee provides an intriguing framework in which to consider the objects that surround us, the infrastructures that mobilise and the systems that control.
Te Tuhi is one of New Zealand's foremost contemporary art spaces and a leader in supporting experimental art practice. The Pakuranga-based gallery is easily accessible by car and bus.
