Giovanni we hardly knew you.

This postcard from Giovanni Intra was stuck inside a file of animals-make-art clippings (including the fabulous Jodi, Wellington Zoo's painting chimp) we were saving for Ronnie van Hout who's in Wellington for his exhibition with Rohan Wealleans. Where else would you expect to find a polyglot? The work Giovanni had in the Sculpitecture - a term hilariously coined by Anthony Caro - exhibition at Hamish McKay's gallery was a small version of the camera parts piece exhibited in his memorial show at the Auckland Art Gallery.
