Episode 6 which screened on 3 October featured artist Seung Yul Oh. Seung recently created a project for the Te Papa Level 6 Sculpture Terrace called Oddooki.

Seung’s Oddooki project was on the Outer Terrace until early June of this year. You may have missed it, but if you did you can see a snippet of the work in the New Artland programme.

For the first programme of its first series New Artland made a programme with Ronnie van Hout.

Te Papa has a number of work of Ronnie’s in the collection and also a current Sculpture Terrace project by Ronnie called A Loss, Again.

A Loss, Again will be on show until mid 2010 so there’s plenty of time to see the work on your next visit.

On 28 November we will be opening a new project on the outer Terrace. The project by Paul Cullen is called A Garden. Here’s an image of the artist’s model as a bit of a teaser.
