Now bought and installed permanently at the Tauranga Sculpture Park, the Tricky Box 5 - Curious Indian Water Well was first shown at the spectacular 2014 New Zealand Sculpture on Shore 10th Biennale, Auckland and subsequently at the Hamilton Garden Arts Festival NZ... where it intrigued, provoked and engaged thousands of visitors to peer into its unexpected depths.
“And then it licked up
The very last drop
The insatiable tongue
Of the hungry city
Sharing the poignant story of women in rural India who have to trudge for miles to collect water, it brings alive the pathos of their journey through original poetry and song, composed and sung by the artists. The real surprise, however, is reflected in the overwrought expressions of the two corten iron sculptures peeping into the well.Sadly, there is not a drop of water in sight. What is revealed in its disconcerting depths is the cloying greed of a ruthless city(sculpted with steel).
