If you were in Auckland last week one of the things you probably heard people talking about was Luke Willis Thompson’s taxi ride. If it had been online it would’ve gone viral. 

The ride and the experience that follows make up the work inthisholeonthisislandwhereiam that Thompson is showing at Hopkinson Cundy. At the gallery space in Cross Street you get bare white walls and a cab in the loading dock. By now (it has been going for a week) quite a few people have taken a ride, but if you haven’t you should definitely try to book a time (call +64 9 55 11 644). You need to reckon on around 45 minutes from when the taxi leaves the gallery. 

No need for a spoiler alert here because that’s all your getting.
