Works in The Vault quietly interact and collide. Taxidermy and zoology meet anthropology, ethnology, art history and archaeology. Facts of ecology and history parade before us as partially-remembered remnants: tangata whenua meets coloniser; antlered beast meets taxidermist; endangered bird meets steel cabinet. Frequently the images are fabulous and otherworldly. Regularly they are compelling and disturbing, with many works reminiscent of Dadaist installations.  From the Vault previews a major exhibition of Pardington's work to be staged at Christchurch Art Gallery in November 2009.
