To celebrate Matariki, the Maori New Year, four artists with both Maori 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. Janet Lilo is a video installation artist of Samoan, Niuean and Nga Puhi descent. Cerisse Palalagi is a print artist of Niuean, Te Arawa and Ngaiterangi descent.

From 18 June - 10 July
Artists' floor talk, Saturday 3 July, 12noon - 1.30pm

Fresh Gallery Otara is open 10am-5pm Tuesday-Friday and 8am-2pm Saturday
