Finale: Bouquet, an installation by Australian artist Nike Savvas, captures a moment of jubilation, with confetti caught mid-fall in a celebration that never ends.
Like a three-dimensional painting, thousands of fluttering, colourful strands fill the gallery.
The seven-colour palette was inspired by multiple sources, including botanical prints of native New Zealand flora by Sarah Featon (1848–1927).
The installation, precisely arranged, invites you to imagine you are immersed in a bouquet of colour and movement. For artist Nike Savvas, your participation completes the artwork.
Finale: Bouquet is part of Te Papa’s permanent collection.
