This well illustrated publication is the first book to survey the work of artist Jane Zusters. Comprising a foreword and chronology by Grant Banbury, with essays by Bridie Lonie, Cushla Parekowhai and Andrew Paul Wood exploring Jane Zusters’ innovative, multilayered art practice. Often concerned with an the interplay of personal identity – the self, history, and place – Zusters’ interests as an artist position her within the ever-changing playing-field of gender politics, contemporary interpretations of historical events, as well as specific ecological and conservation issues.
