Lonnie Hutchinson: This Show Is What I Do

9 December 2005–27 January 2006

Maori/Samoan artist Lonnie Hutchinson transforms the gallery into a chapel with a shrine to Elvis (the Elvesi claimed as Polynesia's own) and a series of signature black cut-out paper veils representing the Stations of the Cross. However it is the inky eroticism of her nude studies—evoking the bloodstained histories of sexual slavery in the Pacific—that steal the show.
