Peace in 10,000 Hands is the creation of New Zealand-born photographic artist Stuart Robertson. The project involves documenting a single white rose, an ancient symbol of peace held in the hands of 10,000 people from every country and walk of life. A number of global celebrities appear as subjects.
In winter 2019 a selection of iconic photographs from the Peace in 10,000 Hands exhibitions will go under the hammer at a fundraising auction to be held at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō in Levin.
The auction will include three first edition 900mm by 900mm and one 330mm by 330mm originals. These pieces that have travelled with the exhibition will be auctioned alongside ten custom made one-of-a-kind artworks over 2m tall each, produced exclusively for Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau pō’s exhibition.
Proceeds from the auction will go to Horowhenua charities working in the prevention, recovery and rehabilitation of victims, perpetrators and families affected by domestic violence.
The pieces will be on display at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō from 19 August 2019 – 31 August 2019, with the live charity auction 7pm, 31 August.
Tickets for the auction are $25 from Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō or online.
