With strong connections to Ashburton and the wider Canterbury region, contemporary artists Jacquelyn Greenbank, Iain Cheesman and Wayne Youle join forces in a collaborative multi-disciplinary installation specifically created for the Ashburton Art Gallery.

Cut the wood, put up the flagpole explores the ideas of place, identity and life in rural New Zealand.
