This collaborative artwork was made by Tiffany Singh and local artist Jo Blogg, who employs similarly meticulous and ritualistic processes in her artworks. The two artists joined forces to transform the gallery space into a powerful sensory art environment.

Indra’s Bow was inspired by the spirituality of Diwali and refers to the rainbow of the god Indra. An immersive artwork, it links Eastern and Western philosophies through a mandala of rice that covers the floor, and a rainbow made of hundreds of glass vessels hanging from the ceiling. The vessels are filled with an array of colourful spices, flowers and more, combining fragrance with visual opulence to create an uplifting experience.

In the gallery space adjacent to Indra’s Bow, the exhibition A Glimpse of India features a rich and diverse group of Indian objects and artworks from the Hawke’s Bay Museums Trust Ruawharo Tā-ū-rangi collection. This exhibition along with both art installations will be open to the public on Saturday 29 October.

Tiffany Singh is an Auckland-based installation artist who deals predominantly with notions of ritual, sacred space, health and wellbeing, and Eastern and Western spirituality, all within a contemporary context. Her work is immersive and holistic, bathing the audience in the world she creates and asking them to engage, alter and co-author an experience of their choosing.

Jo Blogg is a Hawke’s Bay artist who creates works with meticulous attention to detail using an array of media. She works in multiples and applies her obsessive nature to repetitive art-making processes, using pattern, colour, contrast, tone and texture as vehicles to convey ideas and experience.
