*Graham Bennett Hard To Swallow  - Each elegant sculpture represents a whale taken in the 2010 Southern Ocean 'harvest' - 266 Minke whales and 1 Fin whale - before it was cut short by storms and the protest ship Sea Shepherd. There is a fragile beauty about each work, finely crafted by prominent NZ sculptor Graham Bennett, but he is quick to point out that beauty is superficial, and the installation as a whole raises questions about what is 'refined taste'.
