on measuring the ocean
Peter James smith

6 - 30 November 2013

In December 2012, Peter James Smith, artist, mathematician and writer, boarded The Spirit of Enderby on an expedition to the wild deserted impasse of the Southern Ocean. 1000 km south to Macquarie Island then through the sub-Antarctic waters to New Zealand's Campbell Island and the Auckland Island group. This exhibition is Smith's record of a trip into that impasse, and of history, bravely fought, fiercely loved.
