Description

When the first official European settlers arrived in Wellington they established Britannia - an organised settlement meant to ‘showcase’ the ideas of civilised European society.

Nature, through floods and an earthquake, wiped out the idea. Nature may have saved us from Paradise-engineering as Huxley talks about in his book ‘Brave New World’.

The result is seeing the ’Brave New World’ not just as an outward resettlement of immigrants to a new land, but also an inner transformation as they adjust to a new way of life.

In this free exhibition two artist Nancy Barclay and Marguerite Renaud, explore this concept.
