PIONEER CITY - Your kind of space.

18 June - 10 July 2011
Ground Floor, Soho Apartments
80 Taranaki Street
10am - 2pm Saturday & Sunday or by appointment


For the latest public art programme from Letting Space, Bronwyn Holloway-Smith has created a showroom and website promoting a property development on Mars. Pioneer-City.com, provides New Zealanders with an opportunity to contribute to the development of a new colony of the red planet.

Expressions Of Interest from prospective settlers will be taken from 18 June 2011. With aspects of the city currently in development, now is the opportunity to contribute to shaping this remarkable city of the future.

'With NASA scientists aiming for a human mission to Mars in the next 20 years, and private innovators also paving the way, a Martian colony is not a question of 'if' but 'when'", says Holloway-Smith.

BEES Forever: the future of BEE construction



BEES Forever
the future of BEE construction


with Catherine Caudwell, Deb Tuckey and Samantha Wallis

Opening Wednesday 15th June, 6pm
16th June - 9th July

One day a quiet young woman came to dwell in the cottage to which the garden was attached. She seldom ventured into the village, prefering to wander into the garden and nearby forest, collecting berries, herbs, and roots. The bees watched this behaviour with suspicion for it was unlike a fair young maiden to live in this isolated manner. They began to follow her daily amblings, growing ever more convinced of her questionable nature. Once in the woods she appeared to pray over a crushed ladybug until it became quite sprightly and fly away into the sky. This act, witnessed by a consort of worker bees confirmed their fears that unwelcome deeds were afoot in their garden.
