aotearoa - the edition

AOTEAROA - The Land of the Long Abiding Light


This portfolio contains all 49 Terragraphics of the Ekkeland Götze Aotearoa Project. These were printed by the artist in a makeshift printing shop which he set up in the Bay of Islands. At the end of the project the workshop was then dissolved. The portfolio contains the three work sections

TE ARA POUNAMU, KOKOWAI and RUAUMOKO, their accompanying texts, soil samples lists along with single pages.

The Terragraphics were printed in a edition of 5, size 39 x 39 cm. In case form there are 3 copies available. Number 1/5 was presented to the Maori tribe on the land from which the earth samples were taken, number 5/5 is reserved for exhibitions. Numbers 1/5 and 3/5 are printed on Whatman 270 g, 2/5 on Japanese paper and 4/5 and 5/5 on Rives 300 g. All the Terragraphics are signed with an imprint and have a registered number on the back.
