About the Work
“Edith Collier exerts a presence in this city, in street art, street names and the largest collection of her work located anywhere, at the Sarjeant. I’ve learnt a lot about Edith Collier during my time in Whanganui. Going through the archives of the Edith Collier Trust and transcribing postcards written from and to her was illuminating. Having been given this context, this candid photograph makes me feel like I’m witnessing someone I know somewhat.”
