This year, Touch Compass are proud to take part in NZ SculptureOnShore, with our presentation of ON DISPLAY. As our installation is a human sculpture court, we have designated days and times that we will be ‘installing’ the piece.

Saturdays and Sundays - 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th November at 11.00am and 1.00pm (each installation is one hour duration)

ON DISPLAY, by Heidi Latsky of New York is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as a spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a global movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art.

Diversity is the key here! Diversities include, but are not limited to; age, size, race, culture, disability (physical, intellectual, social), beauty, gender (inc transgender), LGBTQ+, distinguishing features (eg tattoos, unusual hair etc).

About the event: NZ SculptureOnShore is New Zealand's largest outdoor sculpture exhibition, and one of the oldest. The event was created as a means to support the charity: Women's Refuge.

The exhibition, which features work from established and emerging artists, provides a unique snapshot of contemporary three dimensional art practice in New Zealand. This includes monumental stand-alone sculptures, domestic and small-scaled works, ephemeral projects, light and sound art works, process art and many site-specific installations.
