Episode One – The Horses Stayed Behind
In the first episode of the Sarjeant Podcast Assistant Curator and host, Sarah McClintock talks to former Tylee Resident Cat Auburn about her exhibition The Horses Stated Behind.
Ten thousand horses left New Zealand for the front lines in World War One, only four returned. It was this fact that occupied Cat Auburn during her time in Whanganui as Tylee Cottage artist-in-residence from November 2014 to February 2015. For The Horses Stayed Behind Auburn asked horse owners from across the country to donate a small clipping of full length hair from their horse or pony’s tail which she then made into rosettes, flowers made in the style of Victorian hair wreaths .
In this podcast hear about Cat’s process, where the idea came from and intercut are interviews with some of the contributors to the project.
The exhibition is on dislpay at Sarjeant on the Quay 26 September 2015 – 10 January 2016.
The Horses Stayed Behind has been generously supported by Creative New Zealand and General Cable.
