Poetic and visually alluring photographs and video works from leading interdisciplinary artist Yuki Kihara place the symbolic figure of Salome in the landscape of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Heretaunga - Hawke’s Bay.

Kihara was inspired to set her works in the Hawke’s Bay region after reading an account of the great Takitimu waka, built in the artist’s homeland of Sāmoa many generations before carrying ancestors of Ngāti Kahungunu to Aotearoa.

Salome is seen visiting various sites of layered historical and contemporary significance, exploring the connections between local tangata whenua and the people of Sāmoa while critiquing colonial systems.

Artist’s Floor Talk – Yuki Kihara - 8 December, 4pm.
