Feeling Bullish

"Povi Tau Vaga" Michael Tuffery, NZ. Brisbane 2008. Ajr
Coming upon Michael Tuffery’s big bulls (made of old corned beef cans) in a glassy corner of the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) in Brisbane, was like coming upon an old friend. Tuffery, a Pacific/New Zealand artist collaborated with Patrice Kaikilekofe, (Futuna/New Caledonia) in the making of this work – “Povi Tau Vaga” (The Challenge), which was purchased by the Queensland Art Gallery Foundation in 1999.
