The Body Snatchers - A fairy Tale?

Saturday 1st June 2019-Thursday 30th April 2020

This is an art installation by Toy Murchie and weaving by Bronwynn Billens.

The installation tells a story of understanding and co-operation.
It explores the account of some Norwegian flax traders that drowned at the Motupipi Inlet almost 200 years ago.
Many years after this terrible event two survivors from the trading ship came back to Golden Bay Mohua and tried to find the place their comrades had been buried.
They couldn’t find them.
It was as if the little people, fairy folk, ngā patupairarehe, de huldrefolk had taken them…
History is but stories. Stories with evidence
