Object Detail


Description
This is one of Rotman's Chambers series, a photographic examination of the interiors of prisons and psychiatric institutions, both active and abandoned, throughout New Zealand,. A number of Wellington institutions were explored and, although this is not one of them, it was selected because of its strong physical presence, its evocative grid-like imagery, the power of the bicultural symbolism and the contrast between historical high art and reality.
