  • Once or twice a month, the private art collection at Gibbs Farm in New Zealand opens up to the public.


  • The tickets are free, but they go very quickly.


  • The art here in this collection isn't just paintings on a wall: it's land art, made by moving vast amounts of soil and earth, or it's sculpture on a scale seen only in a few places in the world.


  • And the most famous piece in the collection is this: Horizons, by Neil Dawson. Fifteen meters wide, the height of a four-story building.


  • Depending on who you ask, it either resembles a piece of corrugated iron blown in from a distant farm... or a giant paper tissue that's been thrown away.

    不同的人看起來會視不同的景象,有些人覺得看起來像是一片從遠方農場吹過來的波浪狀鐵片... 有些則覺得是被亂丟在地上的一大張衛生紙。

  • And it looks like a cartoon that's been sketched on the landscape, but it's made of welded steel.


  • And I think the thing that sells the optical illusion best is that little spike, that little incomplete fold.


  • Which is, yeah, actually a big spike of metal, but from a distance, your brain just doesn't see that.


  • This was one of the first pieces commissioned for Gibbs Farm.


  • And it was commissioned: Alan Gibbs, who owns this farm and the art on it, is one of the wealthiest folks to come from New Zealand.


  • And rather than collect art that had already been made, he hired internationally famous artists and sculptors and said, in short:


  • "Here's some money. Make me a thing that'll go here."


  • This farm is basically one rich millionaire's playground.


  • Heck, it was originally bought as a fairly remote place to drive a collection of vintage military vehicles. The art came second.


  • In a 2017 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Gibbs said:

    在 2017 年《華爾街日報》的一篇採訪中,吉布思表示:

  • "It's not a public park. It's not a charity."


  • "I'm happy to let people see it," he said, "but it's still primarily a family holiday retreat."


  • Of course, everything here is well documented; you can look online and see every sculpture from basically every angle possible.


  • But if you actually want to stand here and experience that optical illusion for yourself, if the feeling of being here, in person, is important to you...


  • Well, Gibbs Farm is only open occasionally.


  • You'll have to join the rest of us in the queue for tickets.
