Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū will be operating a little differently while our city remains Orange under the new COVID-19 Protection Framework. That means you’ll need to show your My Vaccine Pass when you visit us, and wear your mask and scan or sign in. Mā te wā, see you soon.
"Renowned for her beauty, St. Rosa went to great lengths to disfigure herself to repel suitors and guard against sensual pride. She rubbed pepper on her face, lime onto her hands, wore a hairshirt, nettles in her gloves and a crown of roses."
From the exhibition 'Saintly Behaviour' at CoCA, 2001.
