‘Tungaru: The Kiribati Project’ is a collaboration between contemporary New Zealand artists, Chris Charteris and Jeff Smith. Tungaru is the pre-colonial name for Kiribati. The project was born out of Chris’ desire to return to Kiribati, to meet his family and to experience life on these tiny strips of atoll in the Pacific. Always with a camera in hand, Jeff was there to capture much of the journey. The exhibition is not only a personal story about family but one that also references the larger global issues of climate change, over-population and threats to traditional cultures. The exhibition features a selection of artworks from Chris, an interactive Kiribati warrior created by Jeff, and archival footage of Kiribati, alongside pieces from the Museum’s Kiribati collections.
