Glen Hayward: I don't want you to worry about me, I have met some Beautiful People

6 September – 3 November 2013

Real or illusory? Virtual or physical? Sculptor Glen Hayward teases out these questions in this mind-bending new sculpture, a hand-carved and painted recreation of the famous office cubicle from The Matrix.

From the ring binders to the telephone to the pencils in a coffee mug, everything here – like everything in the world of the film – is not quite what it seems. Displayed in a temporary gallery that was formerly an office environment, Hayward's phantom cubicle also echoes the changing spaces of post-earthquake Christchurch, where many offices, vacated and demolished, can now be reconstructed only in memory.

Glen Hayward: I don't want you to worry about me, I have met some Beautiful People is initiated and toured by City Gallery Wellington
