Room with a view

This small building at 589 New North Road in Auckland houses the first Jar Project. The installation, by Stephen Bambury, is called Room for reflection. You can see from our photograph that it is well titled. The work, which can only be viewed from the street is a small room with its floor covered in oil. This Jar Project opened in early 2005, so we were late getting to it - but there are more promised. Check out the web site Jackbooks for more about the Jar Trust (Leigh Davis, Susan Davis & Wystan Curnow), its goals (promoting strong, singular art for public consumption) and especially the photographs by Patrick Reynolds.
