Nobody Here But Us

Coming off a bus from the North Shore at Wellesley Street this afternoon, I find this huge and eye-catching piece of art.

Called "Nobody Here But Us", it's the 1991 work of Richard Deacon, in painted aluminium, commissioned by the ASB Bank Ltd and Fletcher Construction. It sits in the entry to the ASB bank building.

It's weird and big -- but I do like it. Reminds me of tangled movie film.


  1. Oooh now that is a stunning piece Lisa thanks for sharing this.

  2. You should see it up close, Liz. Or better yet, be like me, get off a bus, mind on heritagy matters, see something out of the corner of the eye, and suddenly go "Woah!"

    This has gone on my list of favourite artworks in Auckland.

  3. ohhh it DOESSSS look like a piece of tangled film... very bizzario indeed :-)
