An intriguing two-person show presents the works of art lecturer Salama (Moata) McNamara alongside those of Northland Polytechnic arts graduate Shannon Gleeson. Salama’s pieces for the exhibition developed from a research focus on veils and unveiling.

Her Maori heritage provides a deep understanding of a world ‘ki tua o te arai – beyond the veil’, and her religion sees her taking on the hijab. The resulting collection provides insights into cultural and religious difference and in/exclusion. In her first significant Auckland show, Shannon plays with her “curious admiration for chaos”.

She chose to work with wax, “one of the most chaotic materials I have ever used”.
