“What lies beneath” is an installation by the New Zealand artist Gabby O’Connor. The installation is exploring what lies beneath the tip of an iceberg. The pieces are made of triangles of dyed and lacquered tissue paper, you can read more about it here on Gabby O’Connor’s site. The pictures don’t really do it justice as in person these icebergs do feel mammoth as you look up at them, it’s a really interesting piece of work, made me think.

According to the city gallery website,

” What Lies Beneath asks what happens when we physically bring the landscape inside, how it is civilised and tamed, domesticated, and what remains unknowable and deeply intimidating.”
