This work is one of a series entitled ‘The Vault’. Pardington has taken his inspiration for this series from the original Latin meaning for the word ‘camera’, which is ‘a vaulted room or chamber’. This image, taken in the Pacific storeroom at Te Papa, is part of a large body of work he undertook in various museums throughout New Zealand. Pardington explores the idea of the camera as a kind of miniature storehouse in itself. Within it - like the actual vaults that are his subjects - ideas, images and memories are stored.
Pardington is of Kāi Tāhu, Kāti Mamoi, Kāti Waewae and Pākehā descent.
