The River Lie brings together nine contemporary New Zealand artists who complicate the idea of the landscape. Rather than creating views of idyllic scenery these artists use aspects of the natural world in their work but present them in unexpected ways – with glitter, found objects, lurid colours, and bizarre juxtapositions. 

The digital catalogue that accompanies this exhibition can be found here.
