All roads lead to... A Sense of Place.

A Sense of Place brings together a selection of works that consider the role and impact of contemporary roads. Artists featured in the Papakura Art Gallery group show approach this in different ways. Some works feature specific roads that have played a significant role in shaping the community around them, while others consider roads in more general terms.

The Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust exhibition is curated by Talia Smith and Ioana Gordon-Smith, and is part of the 2014 Auckland Festival of Photography. A Sense of Place includes works by photographers Michelle Beattie, Siobhan van Heerden and Z, and moving image works by Salome Tanuvasa and Jeremy Leatinu'u.

Drawing loosely upon J. B. Jackson’s text A Sense of Place, a Sense of Time, the exhibition suggests that beneath the varied reactions to roads is a basic recognition of the road as a very powerful space. Curators Talia Smith and Ioana Gordon-Smith are interested in the different ways that artists approach and relate to the roads they document, and how their works add to our understanding of place.
