September 2015 Auckland Live and Colab Partnership
Colab was excited to be a partner in Auckland Live’s project Still, an interactive memorial presented simultaneously in Auckland, Christchurch, and Poitiers in France.
The three installations invited audiences to explore the duality of war; the destruction of lives and the construction of a collective future, with the aim of commemorating the First World War, and offering an opportunity to connect with people from countries involved in the war 100 years ago.
The collaboration between Auckland Live and Colab, as well as Christchurch Arts Festival, and Lieu Multiple, enabled the exhibition to take place across the three locations, at the same time.
The exhibition’s opening included a panel discussion, Defying Time, with special guest Professor Helen Gilbert from the University of London.
