Photographer Akura Makea-Pardington recognises Matariki, Maori New Year, as an opportunity to acknowledge and grieve local histories but also to celebrate self-determination, whakapapa and the hau of the whenua. ‘Spirit of Place’, her new body of images, explores the ways in which people express their sense of selfhood and their beliefs, and how they register their thoughts, however fleeting, upon the whenua (land).

Akura is of Cook Island, Ngāi Tahu and Scottish heritage. Having graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from Elam in 2012, she is now studying art history at the University of Auckland. Hers is one of two shows celebrating Matariki at Northart in June, the other being painter Frances Atkins’ ‘Tekau’.

They will share a special opening event on Saturday 4 June from 4pm to 6pm and then run daily 10am to 4pm, with the exception of Queen's Birthday 6 June.
