Following the Second World War, the New Zealand Government offered subsidies for war memorials to be constructed throughout the country as new community spaces – ‘living memorials’ – for those who sacrificed their lives fighting overseas.

Fiona Jack’S Living Halls exhibition, an archival project that engages with this phenomenon and communities across Aotearoa, taps into personal, social, architectural and art histories. A collaborative endeavour spanning almost two years and counting, Living Halls comprises accumulations of paintings, architectural drawings and photographs.

A book to accompany the project, co-produced by the Govett-Brewster and Clouds, will be published in 2010. Fiona Jack is the 2009/10 Govett-Brewster New Zealand Artist in Residence, a major partnership with the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT) supported by Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
