Here is Your Horizon

Talia Smith has invited 11 artists from New Zealand and Australia to explore the contemporary Pacific experience of adornment. Letting the collision, and harmony, of materiality and experience lead the way, Niki Hastings-McFall created a colourful installation of leis, similarly Serene Timoteo and Samuel Tupou recalibrate manifestations of heritage for the present day. What is liminal is cleverly explored in the digital realm with Sione Monu’s instagram take-over and Salome Tanuvasa’s drawings, which abstract the experience of long-distance phone-conversations.
