Artists Mari Mahr
Theme Art

Photography is often spoken about in relation to memory or the past; in this exhibition two series by Hungarian artist Mari Mahr (currently London and Berlin based) catalogue a place outside of time. Two Walk in Paris and Two Walk in Edinburgh - 16 photographs, each accompanied by text from Wellington poets Gregory O'Brien and Jenny Bornholdt - are about the acts of walking and talking, and most significantly, looking through cities together. They recall Mahr's shared experiences with her late husband Graham Percy and their connections to each place.

Two Walking is an exhibition partnership between City Gallery Wellington and Gus Fisher Gallery, The University of Auckland.
