Interview with Jim Allen

Jim Allen discusses his motivation for creating a 'complete sensory experience'. Allen's sculptures Small worlds, Tribute to Hone Tuwhare, and Space plane, environment no. 1 (all 1969) are key examples of New Zealand post-object art. The works are on show in Te Papa's contemporary art exhibition, Collecting Contemporary, from 11 February 2012.

Jim Allen reads Hone Tuwhare's poem 'Thine own hands have fashioned', which features in his work Tribute to Hone Tuwhare.
