Lyttelton Redux

Listen to my interview with Jessie Mulligan about the Lyttelton Redux project on RadioNZ, 9 February 2017 (10:28mins)

Lyttelton Redux is an original audio visual project created to assist the Lyttelton Museum in its efforts at maintaining visibility in their community while the museum continues to operate without a physical building or exhibition space following the Christchurch earthquakes of 2011.

23 portraits recreate current Lyttelton locals as notable historical and everyday figures from Lyttelton’s rich past, encompassing a diverse cross-section of Lyttelton’s early communities, reflecting the town’s social history, its connection with the sea and the area’s development over time. In addition, each portrait is accompanied by combinations of archival audio, courtesy of Nga Taonga Sound and Vision, and a little audio about the present-day subject. The portraits literally ‘speak for themselves.’

The Lyttelton Redux exhibition was made possible with support from Creative New Zealand, Lyttelton Museum, Christchurch City Council, Nga Taonga Sound and Vision and Canterbury Museum.
