Mari Mahr: Two Walking

4 February–10 April 2011

PARTNER Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland OTHER VENUES Gus Fisher Gallery

In this show, Hungarian photographer Mari Mahr photo series, Two Walk in Paris and Two Walk in Edinburgh, are accompanied by poems from Wellington poets Gregory O’Brien and Jenny Bornholdt. Mahr's photos were produced when her late husband, New Zealand-born artist, illustrator, typographer, and designer Graham Percy, first became very ill. Mahr’s images refer to his graphic work, incorporating his tools and materials. In this elegiac project, the cities of Paris and Edinburgh are positioned as private monuments to his presence and work.
