Stories Beyond Refuge

Thursday 02/02/2017

One of the most compelling sculptures at the 2017 Sculpture on the Gulf Exhibition on Waiheke Island was a work by Tiffany Singh, developed in partnership with the Auckland Resettled Community Coalition. 

Abandoned boats were used as sound shells from which emanated the stories of refugee resettlement.  The works stand as a celebration of tolerance and diversity but also tell of the struggles to settle. Showing the fabrics of many countries of origin and boats covered with washi paper boats the work is both strong and fragile, speaking of many journeys, finally finding shore.

The Auckland Resettled Community Coalition also features on Planet FM every Saturday at 4.50pm.
