In May 2011 the Kermadec initiative of the Pew Environment Group invited nine artists to sail on the HMNZS Otago through the Kermadec waters north of mainland New Zealand.

The journey of over 2,000 kms, from Auckland to Raoul Island and on to Tonga, was an opportunity to experience the most remote region of this country - a territory which until now has been absent from New Zealand art history.

The group comprised sculptor and sound-artist Phil Dadson, photographers Bruce Foster and Jason O’Hara, poet-painter and art curator Gregory O’Brien, painter-poet John Pule, painter-printmaker Robin White, painter John Reynolds, sculptor Elizabeth Thomson and celebrated Australian multi-media artist Fiona Hall.

Since the voyage, works from the Kermadec project have been exhibited around New Zealand, and in Australia, Tonga and on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Drawing on a variety of approaches and media, the works speak eloquently of an encounter with the Kermadec Islands, the Pacific Ocean, the wildlife and of human interactions within that environment.

Since it was first shown at the Tauranga Art Gallery, the Kermadec exhibition continues to capture the public imagination, while at the same time raising vital issues about art, life and the world around us.

The City Gallery Wellington showing includes previously unseen works from this on going project.
