Te Tuhi presents In Transit (Arrival), a large-scale sculpture by artist Yona Lee that explores the structure and pulse of civilisation. This vast entangled structure, which visitors can walk through, is made of stainless steel tube commonly used as barriers and handrails in train stations and airports around the world. Interwoven throughout the structure is a miscellany of everyday objects ranging from coat hangers to bus handles, from street signs to umbrellas. Through this elaborate construction, Lee provides an intriguing framework to consider the objects that surround us, the infrastructures that mobilise, and the systems that control.
