They Say Ten Thousand Years

They Say Ten Thousand Years


Publisher: Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery

Artist: Amy Howden-Chapman

They Say Ten Thousand Years looks back at the strategies of New Zealand's Nuclear Free movement through the lens of the current struggle to avert catastrophic climate change. Combining semiotic and poetic strategies, They Say Ten Thousand Years also builds a narrative that contests nuclear energy's potential role in plans to prevent climate destabilisation.
