a temple, a commons, and a cave is conceived as an urban enquiry into how disparate social, cultural and political genealogies intersect within a singular site. Woven together from the drift of ideas and peoples from across the Asia-Pacific region, this exhibition considers the following: how do we shape our environment, and how does our environment shape us?

How do we shape our environment, and how does our environment shape us?

Woven together from the drift of ideas and peoples from across the Asia-Pacific region, a temple, a commons, and a cave is conceived as an urban enquiry into how disparate social, cultural and political genealogies intersect within a singular site.

Presenting a range of video, sculptural and sound-based works, the artists in this exhibition employ a multiplicity of languages and strategies – translation and mimicry, deconstruction and whakawhanaungatanga – to navigate relationships with the present and with each other.

Spaces of friendship and benevolence coexist alongside sites of creative labour. Overlapping histories and ideologies are mapped out on a malleable topography, providing playful interpretations of our current critical moment in the South Pacific.

A Temple, A Commons, and A Cave is curated by Amy Weng, and is proudly supported by the Asian Aotearoa Arts Hui.
