being there

My prints and photographs from the 1970s and from post – earthquake Christchurch are now showing at Tivoli  on Waiheke Island. Tivoli is a small art gallery that functions as a specialist bookstore, occasional mini-cinema and events space run by Liz Eastman, an art historian and writer who has shown artists such as  Alexis Hunter, Richard Killeen and film maker Laura Poitras.
Cushla Parekowhai launched my new book Where Did You Go To My Lovelies? Jane Zusters Revisits the 70s, which contains never before exhibited photographs of political demonstrations in Christchurch. Check this out at Liz’s website.

The  exhibition includes photographs from my three books: Where The Home Is, Unruly Memories and the new book  launched by Cushla Parekowhai at the opening of the exhibit on Saturday 1st August, 5pm: Where did you go to my lovelies? This contains photographs not exhibited before from political demonstrations in Christchurch in the 1970s. I follow four friends from those demonstration days into their 70’s daily lives and include recent photographs of them plus interviews. They are: Morrie Love (former commune dweller and Director Waitangi Tribunal 1996-2003), Allie Eagle ( lesbian mother and feminist artist), Tiffany Thornley ( feminist artist), and Dave Mitchell (activist and hippy, now activist and social worker). The exhibition  includes my  photographic montages of the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake.

About Jane Zusters

Jane Zusters is a teller of stories, often veiled in metaphor and camouflaged with ambiguities, but always deriving from her own relationships with people, places and events.
