Commissioned by Christchruch Art Gallery for the elevator in the gallery foyer, Reuben Paterson's The End lets you imagine yourself travelling through a dark sky, offering an unexpected space for contemplation and connection.
Paterson drew inspiration from the name of the Gallery building, Te Puna o Waiwhetu, or 'waters in which stars are reflected.'
This is one of many projects designed to welcome visitors back into the building, and celebrate the milestone of the Gallery’s reopening as part of the city’s recovery.
On view at Christchurch Art Gallery from 30 March 2016 - 30 March 2017.
