Caravan from Istanbul, Dunedin Sonja van Kerkhoff
A long line of origami elephants travel from the Octagon (where OCCUPY protesters reside) to the Blue Oyster Project Art Space, in Moray Place. Constructed from ethnic language newspapers collected from countries she has visited, Sonja Van Kerkhoff graduated from the Dunedin School of Art in 1982 and previously lived in Dunedin from 1980-89. She has been exhibiting installations, sculpture and performance art nationally and internationally since the mid-1980s.
