Title:Fiona Pardington : the pressure of sunlight falling
Abstract:"An ambitious journey of the nineteenth century was the third voyage of the French explorer Dumont d'Urville, from 1837-1840. It was just before the invention of photography, when phrenology, the study of people's skulls, was the latest thing. D'Urville chose to take on the voyage an eminent phrenologist, Pierre-Marie Dumoutier, to preserve likenesses of people by making life casts ... Fiona Pardington first learned of the life casts in 2007, which initiated a four-year project. It took her from Auckland to the Musée de l'Homme [in Paris], as she researched and photographed some of more than fifty casts of Māori, Pacific and European heads, including casts of her Ngāi Tahu ancestors"--Jacket flap
