Destroyed Word by internationally renowned Spanish artist Santiago Sierra was exhibited at Te Tuhi in 2013 and is the artist’s first major work to be presented in New Zealand. Throughout his practice, Sierra has investigated systems of social, political and economic power that assert their dominance through exploitation and marginalisation.

Sierra’s Destroyed Word continues this line of enquiry and is part of a body of work that includes works such as Submission (2006–07), NO Global Tour (2009–12) and Burned Word (2012) that feature singular giant words constructed or positioned in specific locations that resonate with the harsh economic realities of capitalism. This publication documents the 2013 exhibition at Te Tuhi and includes a contextual essay by former Senior Curator Bruce E. Phillips.
