Bouncy Marae

The New Dowse in Lower Hutt, NZ, has a excellent new exhibition: The Bouncy Marae. Here is the description from the New Dowse website:

"In her childhood, artist Inez Crawford (Te Whanau a Apanui) imagined that her local marae was a giant castle, and in her latest artwork she brings that fantasy to life as part of the Plastic Maori exhibition. Her giant inflatable Bouncy Marae is open in our courtyard for kids of all ages to experience - parental supervision required. Crawford uses the playful nature of this work to comment on the commercialisation of Maori art."
