Untie This

Untie This by Duncan Sargent

This is one of a series of works proposed for the banks of Waiwhetu Stream. The works are to reflect the industrial heritage of the area, its Maori history and its rejuvenation now the stream has been cleaned. The work was purchased in 2014 from the ShapeShifter Exhibition. The artist is Duncan Sargent.

This work features a roughhewn piece of totara, inside a web of aluminium. It highlights the contrasts between manmade and natural, shiny and smooth versus roughhewn.

The artist�s grandparents lived beside the Waiwhetu Stream.
