Art to wow Hong Kong
Pacific flair: Bev Goodwin's World of
WearableArt creation Polyrococo is
being shown in Hong Kong this
An Orakei artist is one of 12 Auck-
landers to have their work chosen
for a special World of WearableArt
show in Hong Kong.
Bev Goodwin s piece Polyrococo
will be shown to more than 16,000
people at the Hong Kong Arts Fes-
WOW managing director Gab-
rielle Harvey says the 70-minute
show has been specially created to
showcase the best of the best
sections from past WOW award
The performance in Hong
Hong will present more than 100
extraordinary WOW garments.
There will also be dozens of dance
and character costumes, and some
We aim to show New Zealand
to be a country of creativity and
colour, presenting a different side
of us from the way that perhaps
the Hong Kong and Chinese mar-
ket traditionally thinks of us.
For example, through our
South Pacific section we can show

is unlikely to have ever seen
WOW before, so they won t know
what has hit them.
Ms Goodwin has another
artwork based on leis in the free
sculpture exhibition now on at the
Auckland Botanic Gardens.

When I stop to think about it,
I feel inordinately sad. Did it
have to happen?
Photos and newspaper reports
of the time hurt. They remind
me of the groundswell of opinion
against the destruction, yet it
The cottage in Paget St,
Freemans Bay, gives a clue.
Demolition is approved by a
consultant planner, hired, at
great cost no doubt, by the
council to give approval.
The same planner approved
Turua St s demise.
The hired consultant, Brook
Dales, states in his report he is
not a heritage expert .
Yet he is mandated to sign off
the destruction of historic
This may delight developers
while we, the communities, are
appalled. We have no power, yet
we elected the councillors and
our rates pay the council staff.
History is torn down and
replaced by one matchbox
building after another.
Shame on you, shame on you!
