title - te tangi

Station of Earth-Bound Ghosts was a unique art event staged at the Auckland Railway Station, immediately prior to it's being decommissioned.

The installation was a set of 30 flags emblazoned with poetry, exploring the legacy of Te Kooti and themes of New Zealand colonisation, employing Davis' raw, economical, ambiguous, and collagist style.

DV8 Creative was commissioned to design the flags, in collaboration with book designer Christine Hansen, and also oversee all aspects of production, from flag-making by Blue Grass Flags, to collaborating with artist/curator Stephen Bambury in preparing the venue with lighting and signage (including the impressive projected-light passages on the frontage and throughout the interior).
