The No Town Project has been created by New Zealand artist Caroline McQuarrie. McQuarrie is a Lecturer in Photography at Whiti o Rehua School of Art, College of Creative Arts, Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. She is an interdisciplinary artist working with photography, video and craft practices to explore meaning carried in photographic and craft based objects and domestic, suburban or community sites. Exploring the role of the feminine in everyday life, and investigating the capacity for the act of making to create agency in women’s lives, McQuarrie is concerned with how memory and sentiment is manifested in objects - specifically photographs and/or hand crafted objects. Her work also explores how the photographic representation of a site with a particular history can reflect on the present. She is currently working on various projects exploring the history of the West Coast of the South Island, exploring how small stories in out of the way places can reflect on what happens in the wider world.
