The Labour of Burying Sculpture as Performance - Trent Hiles

From Standing Room Only, 2:50 pm on 10 November 2019

Digging narrow trenches for eight hours a day on Banks Peninsula, then burying three lovingly carved wooden sculptures, wrapped in traditional baskets,and leaving them there, is the idea behind Lyttleton artist Trent Hiles' latest project Labour of Life [The Art of Work].  

He's been creating this combined sculpture installation and performance for the Sculpture on the Peninsula event all this week on Banks Peninsula. Sculpture on the Peninsula is on at Loudon Farm this weekend.
