This project commemorates the New Zealanders who served overseas in WWI. A memorial artwork installation by renowned New Zealand artist Max Gimblett will adorn the architecture of St David’s Church – also known as the Soldiers’ Memorial Church – on Khyber Pass Road in Auckland. This artwork was unveiled on the eve of Anzac Day on 24 April 2015, and is a free, public exhibition for the benefit for all New Zealanders. This three-month long public art installation is the centrepiece of a commemorative art project.

The full project is comprised of several thousand individual components – each one a brass, Max Gimblett quatrefoil that is the size of a human hand outstretched.

In addition to its primary role to commemorate those who served in WWI, the project will also raise funds from the sale of individual quatrefoils. The proceeds from the art sales will go towards the restoration of St David’s to its founding role as a permanent memorial to the sacrifices of New Zealanders who have served in all wars, and as a heart of the community with multiple functions.

This project is an initiative of the Friends of St David’s Trust, which is a charitable trust established to support the restoration of the historic St David’s Church building for its potential to serve the community in a variety of capacities.

We invite all to get behind this large-scale, public, WWI commemorative art project.
