WIFT member Stephanie Bennett has recently completed documentary about Waiheke's most prestigious biennial outdoor sculpture show. Headland:Where Sculpture Meets Nature is a documentary about Waiheke Island's Sculpture on the Gulf, produced and directed by Stephanie, who also produced and directed the highly acclaimed Ringa Whao: Chris Bailey, aired on Maori TV.
Sculpture on the Gulf was first established in 2003 by the Waiheke Community Art Gallery when they mounted the first 3D exhibition on Waiheke Island's coastal walkway. Headland: Where Nature Meets Sculpture tells the story of how it all began through interviews with Jackie O'Brien, Artistic Director for the first three shows and founding benefactors Sue Fisher and Graham Guthrie. The film shows the challenges faced by the artists selected for the 2011 exhibition. Chief installer Geoff Goss, his crew and the island volunteers install 39 sculptures on difficult sites in highly inclement weather. Most of all Headland: Where Nature Meets Sculpture presents the beauty of art set against the beauty of nature.

It is available through the Waiheke Community Art Gallery at www.waihekeartgallery.org.nz on Waiheke Island for $30 or email Stephanie at Rongo.productions@gmail.com
