Meeting of the Mountains »

10 - 18 Oct 2015
Silo 6, Wynyard Quarter

Meeting of the Mountains symbolizes the special and unique volcanic landscape that is Auckland City. These structures are abstract representations of the mountains we see before us, laid out in arrangements which promote intrigue, exploration and wonder. As individual objects they naturally provide a place of rest and retreat from the sun, but in an arrangement of many they also offer a space for people to gather and converse, much like how Auckland’s landscape has done this for the vibrant growing city.

Artists: Leon Kipa, Kennedy Brown, Edward Fuller & Ron Crummer
