This exhibition runs at Aratoi Museum from 14 August – 4 October 2015. All are invited to an artist talk with Connah Podmore on Sunday 16 August at 2 pm.

How do we remember the First World War, the wars before, and those that have followed? The pasts appear as a tangled mass of opposing views: political, emotional and moral. Artist Connah Podmore is thinking and learning about these histories, and on Sunday, 16 August, she invites members of the public to write a postcard to, and with, history. There will also be readings from the postcards, discussion, and a Q&A session with the artist.

Awarded the New Zealand Pacific Studio 2015 Anzac Bridge Fellowship, Podmore joined the Anzac Day Service at Kaiparoro. She has participated in the recent collaborative exhibition In Response at Toi P┼Źneke and in 2014, was awarded the Artist’s Grant from the Emerging Artist’s Trust,and was a Finalist in the Parkin Drawing Prize. She is based in Wellington.

New Zealand Pacific Studio, located in Mt Bruce of the Wairarapa, is a non-profit residency centre open year-round for artists and researchers.
