In printmaking a “1:1” is a monoprint, a singular work of art. In architecture, “1:1” refers to a full-scale drawing or model. The equation also connotes a conversation between equals: two artists co-creating, hemispheres of the brain, or a person and her deity. This project provided an opportunity to reflect on our shared experiences of colonisation and the impact of missionary activity across the Pacific, and provided a space to reflect on the role of spirituality as we move into an increasingly secular society. Ideas of space, light and sound and the use of transparent and lightweight materials helped us to tell stories of spirituality, tradition, navigation and culture.
The hanging chapel was the centre piece a larger exhibition. Collaborating artists, including 5 from Aotearoa and 15 from Hawaii, compiled a print series of 14 traditional prints which build off the themes of the Catholic / Christian chapel iconography.
