Hannah Kidd wins Sculpture on the Peninsula, 2017

Creates 'Hot House' in Slaughterhouse

A biennial sculpture show has transformed a slaughterhouse into a hot house complete with welded plants and birdsong.

Hannah Kidd was awarded the ultimate prize at the Sculpture on the Peninsula show for her work, "Hot House".

The artist received $10,000 for the piece, set up in the killing room of the working Louden farm and featuring metal cacti, lilies and carnivorous plants.

Inspired by a hot house in the botanical gardens, the artwork is heated and the recorded noise of birdsong fills the room.

The sculpture is one of more than 100 displayed around the Banks Peninsula farm, which is open to the public Saturday and Sunday event.
