This art installation presents a puzzling new angle on what many regard as one of the most damaging decisions ever made for New Zealand’s native flora and fauna.

Enigma, created by local artist Sue Heydon, features giant ‘seed forms’ which she has intricately hand-woven from the vine of old man’s beard (Clematis vitalba). The artwork presents the plant not only as an invasive species, but also as a useful fibre, and begs the question “Can it be both?”.
