Fresh Gallery Otara is proud to present…
A group exhibition featuring new work by Margaret Aull, Cerisse Palalagi and Leilani Kake. Curated by Ema Tavola
WHERE: Fresh Gallery Otara, Otara Town Centre, Manukau City, New Zealand
To celebrate Matariki, the Māori New Year, four artists with both Māori and Pacific Island heritage explore the cultural interface of being both tangata whenua and tauiwi. The artists represent the increasingly visible sector of intercultural New Zealanders, offering insight into the conflict and tension, joys and connectedness of being a “native coconut”.
Margaret Aull is a painter of Fijian, Te Rarawa and Tuwharetoa descent. Leilani Kake is a video installation artist of Cook Island, Nga Puhi and Tainui descent. Cerisse Palalagi is an print artist of Niuean, Te Arawa and Ngaiterangi descent.
Exhibition ends 10 July, 2010.
