Victoria on the River to Get New Addition

25th Sep 19

Hamilton’s Victoria on the River park will feature a new sculpture thanks to the generosity of philanthropic arts organisation MESH Sculpture Hamilton.

The group, which has previously funded and delivered several art projects across the city, has commissioned academic and artist Professor Robert Jahnke to create the piece, which is called "Te Tatau ki Kirikiriroa" (The Doorway to Hamilton).  It will serve as an opening through which visitors to the park can view the Waikato River.

Foundation work for the sculpture began on Monday and is expected to take four weeks. The costs (Including design, creation and installation) area all being covered by MESH.

Maria Barrie, Hamilton City Council’s Parks and Recreation Manager says that the 8m wide and 4.5m high sculpture will be an impressive and eye-catching addition to the park.

“MESH’s representatives signalled early on they were particularly keen to bring a piece of art to Victoria on the River and we’ve reached the exciting phase when it’s now coming to fruition.”

"This work represents two hard years of planning and fundraising. As with our previous three works we are building a collection of works which speak to each specific site, tell stories of our city and our history but also look towards our future and help engage with the diverse cultures that now represent Hamilton," says MESH Chairperson Nancy Caiger.

Mrs Caiger says one of the exciting features of this new artwork is the use of fluorescent light and mirrors which will make the artwork take on a whole new look in the evening.

“Jahnke’s long explored the connections between mirroring, light, perception, history and retrospection. Jahnke’s work frequently features light and mirrors that create an infinity effect which works to draw people in, to interact.”

Although the park will remain open, people visiting Victoria on the River over the next few weeks are urged to keep clear of the work site and be aware of construction noise and activity related to the sculpture installation.

The sculpture is expected to be unveiled in mid November.

The Results are In - Who's the Fastest and Who's the Slowest?

You've got to move quickly in Invercargill if you want to buy a home.  Real estate in the southern-most city is among the fastest selling in the country, due to increased demand from first home buyers, real estate experts say. Of the 12 suburbs where houses spent the shortest time on the market last year, all but three had median property values of less than $500,000.  Invercargill dominated the list, with homes in four of the city's suburbs typically selling within 20 days or less.
