Presented by: Tauranga Art Gallery – Toi Tauranga
Matapihi hikoi with Maraea Timutimu
Join Maraea as she takes us on a guided walk from her exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery to Matapihi, followed by kai and music.
He kāwai whenua He kāwai whakapapa addresses the centrality of whenua within mātauranga Māori and the ways it can connect us to our stories, histories, identities and whakapapa. Timutimu presents a suite of large-scale colour photographs that are a play on portraiture; stones and rocks are collected from the waterways of her maternal and paternal kāinga at Matapihi, Tauranga Moana, and Rūātoki, Eastern Bay of Plenty. They are composed into totemic forms that poetically stand in for people and places that are important to the artist.
Reservations recomended, participation is free. More infomation coming soon….
