Two 'tourists of photography' of different generations in a game of visual snap. Gavin Hipkins's new epic eighty-photo frieze The Homely II scrambles of images of New Zealand and Great Britain. This 'Victorian melodrama' is accompanied by some fifty Peter Peryer photos chosen to resonate with it. The title comes from a Peryer image, which sees 'GONE HOME' inscribed on a tombstone. Peryer died in November 2018.
Curated by Gavin Hipkins and Robert Leonard, Chief Curator, City Gallery Wellington.
