From Standing Room Only, 2:49 pm on 5 July 2020

A two metre high Space Cow that references life, death, DNA and Spanish artist Salvador Dali's famous Space Elephant has won this year's Fieldays No.8 Wire National Art Award. Napier artist Asaki Kajima won the award for the hanging installation that's taller than she is and made almost entirely out of...well...number 8 wire. Lynn Freeman spoke to Asaki Kajima and to the judge who was enchanted by her number 8 wire Space Cow, sculptor James Wright.
