What colour is the sacred....?

Tiffany Singh has put together an interesting show at the MIC Toi Rerehiko Gallery in Auckland. Part of her work is a documentary featuring artists discussing their work in the area of social responsibility - which includes several excerpts from an interview she did with me.

The other part involves wax images of a variety of sacred symbols (e.g. Buddha, an apple, Mother Mary), identical in shape but different in colour.

What makes it interesting is that visitors to the gallery can exchange some form of personal art for one of these images: a song, a poem, a picture, while they view the documentary. Through the process of exchange participants become connected to one another, and there is a tangible record of the small social network that has been created. Show is open until 1 May, 2010.
