A long view of the three works that make up Save Yourself. In the foreground is Dancers, the middle Long and the background Lonely.
Te Papa has acquired Dancers for the collection.
Te Papa have purchased three works from Giraffe-Bottle-Gun. This shaped work leaning on the wall in the above image and the single shaped painting in the image below.
The third piece acquired by Te Papa from Giraffe-Bottle-Gun is not so easy to see in the current installation. It is the painting at the left of this image below – the one behind the other work.
Both the installations look great in the spaces and I recommend a visit if you can.
If you are interested in finding out more about the works and the Biennale, coming up on 18 March our Art After Dark is dedicated to the Venice Biennale.

After the floor talk there will be a panel discussion on the Marae. For more detail go to our Art After Dark page:
