Biography Blair Trethowan
Following is an essay by Danae Mossman for the catalog of Love, a 2005 Exhibition by Bliar Trethowan for Gertrude Contemporary Art.
We had a suicide bomber in New Zealand in the 1980s. He blew up the Wanganui Computer Centre, the place where the New Zealand police records were kept, in protest. Neil Roberts was his name. Just prior to this he spray painted on the wall opposite the building 'we have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity'. He had a tattoo saying 'this punk won't see 23'. He didn't. He had something to say, and he said it. In many facets of our existence there is silence. People are scared to speak. When do we have a voice?
Love 2005 is a suite of five collages on bark.
