17 May - 5 June

An exhibition of new works by Amy Couling


Miyako (京) is the first kanji character that spells Kyoto, the former ancient capital that is also Amy’s Japanese hometown.


These new works were made under the themes of longing to go back to places that are dear to us, but physically not being able to because of the ongoing pandemic. The aching of the heart that misses family and friends abroad and yearns to be back in a specific place or second home. 


This exhibition is a topical reminder of the emotional cost of the pandemic and not being able to be with the people and places that we love, but with the hope that we may be reunited soon.

Miyako has the support of the Christchurch City Creative Communities Scheme.
