Peter Trevelyan: Mimetic Brotherhood
4 Plinths Project, Wellington Sculpture Trust
Outside Te Papa

Part of the Arts Festival's visual arts programme was the unveiling of a new work covering the four concrete plinths on the waterfront outside Te Papa.

Instantly dubbed 'blobs', Peter Trevelyan's work of steel, rivets and flexible waterproofing membrane was soon being poked and prodded. The public become part of the show, whether attracted by the shiny objects or by the (misleading) hints of malleability in their structure.

Mimetic Brotherhood is to stay in place until early 2012, to be replaced by a new work at the next Festival of the Arts.
