In this exhibition at The Central Art Gallery, Hannah Kidd muses upon the nature of inheritance. What do we learn about ourselves from the objects left behind by others?

Hannah Kidd (Ngāti Toa) is a New Zealand sculptor that seems to be extremely inquisitive about life, its human and animal subjects, as well as all their interactions, machinations, routines and idiosyncrasies. She creates three-dimensional steel framed and corrugated iron clad sculpture, often life size or larger. Invested with energy, humour, and inventiveness, these sculptures do not divulge the many hours it takes for Hannah and her assistant Sue Bamford to draw, raw, cut, bend, weld, attach and sometimes paint, her creations into existence.
