The Indefinite Article

The Indefinite Article by Michael Parekowhai

Artwork Detail Request a print

The Indefinite Article was made in 1990. It is simply constructed from angled and joined pieces of plywood to spell the letters I, A, M, H, E. The letters are painted with white acrylic paint. The five parts to the work are each variable in dimension and the components spell the phrase I AM HE. The Indefinite Article was curated by George Hubbard into the 1990 exhibition Choice! presented at Auckland’s ARTSPACE. Michael Parekowhai created this work while he was a student at Elam School of Fine Arts.
