Money, wealth, and houses – what game pops to mind?
Join us to explore these themes on occasion of Stars start falling artist Ani O’Neill’s artwork monoPoly which is based on the famous game that everyone loves to hate. We’ll have Monopoly games set up for you to play and have a kōrero about how housing and economic issues affects a community’s culture.
Ani O'Neill describes her crochet works as paintings, pushing up against perceived distinctions between "art" and "craft" - and the value assigned to each in the context of the art gallery. MonoPoly and Counter Productive are landscapes, both toying with the genre's particular way of seeing fashioned by capitalism and its product, imperialism. They abstract the gentrification of Auckland's inner city into crochet cityscapes.
