Exhibition: 'Walking Distance', Celia Walker, 30Oct-18Nov, Auckland

'Walking Distance' is the latest exhibition by Celia Walker,
at Depot Artspace Gallery from 30 October to 18 November.
Opening: 31st October 10am – 4pm
This installation traces the many paths and places within walking distance of home, with the altered perspective of physical distancing and restricted travel of these current times. 

"The series of 49 tiny lockdown prints was created as a way of focusing my attention away from the anxiety of news and current events onto the narrow view of daily walks, and the rest of the installation has evolved from these small notations into larger works. I also see walking as an act of climate action: with road transport making up around 37% of Auckland’s carbon emissions, the simple act of walking as transport benefits my own health and the health of the environment." – Celia Walker 

"Distant Conversations"
This print exchange, organised by Celia Walker as we went into the first lockdown back in March 2020, was intended as a means of creating a connection between 16 printmakers across NZ as an opportunity to create a marker of this unique and unsettling period of time. It will hang adjacent to Celia's above exhibition.
