...The Long Way
"On the 18th Feburary 2012 we found ourselves on a deserted south coast beach. Beyond the waves was the start of a two thousand kilometre self-propelled journey by paddle, peddle and foot leading to Cape Farewell, the most northerly point of the south island. This Exhibition represent all the outstanding moments of our three months travel through our most wild and beautiful places".
About the artwork
We found this poem handwritten and unsigned in many hut books throughout the South Island.
Before you go there’s one thing more,
Have you checked the firewood store?
Are you man or are you mouse?
Have you acted like a louse?
Burn up all and carried none,
Curses on you, more than one,
Here’s hoping that where you next dwell,
The fires dead out, and it rains like hell,
The firewood’s wet; the bush is soaking,
Once again, I’ll say; here’s hoping.
