Anna Korver is an internationally recognised sculptor currently based in Taranaki. She has been exhibiting nationally and internationally since finishing her BFA in sculpture at the University of Canterbury in 2003. She has been selected in the Wallace awards twice, invited to exhibit work in many large-scale outdoor sculpture exhibitions including Brick Bay sculpture Trail and Tai Tapu sculpture garden and has attended more than 60 national and international sculpture symposiums.
The series included in this exhibition ‘Black birds’ are a continuation from an original 2.5m tall work in forged steel. It refers to environmental concerns, transforming the form into a more severe architectural man-made shape.
It has taken on any installation forms including ‘The rapid evacuation of flight squadron 23071’ ‘Bird flower’ and ‘Black bird army.’
These are fitting for this exhibition as they represent an idea of freedom and hope within the natural man-made constraints we live in.
