Mandy Patmore

From forest to housing, rubbish pile to gallery, Mandy Patmore’s installation explores the notion of habitat. Patmore acknowledges the journeys of native trees, growing in their natural environment providing shelter for flora and fauna, before being logged to build homes for people. Working entirely on reclaimed native timber from demolished houses, a multitude of intricately painted plants and wildlife have their homes returned to them in a different form.


Mandy Patmore is a well-known West Auckland painter and sculptor who lives in Karekare. She has a passionate relationship with her local environment and her work reflects this; looking at the past, present and future of our land, and human interactions with it. Patmore has worked as a freelance artist, Arts Educator, an Environmental Arts Coordinator, and has had a hand in creating a large percentage of the community art works on display in West Auckland. In 2011 she project-managed Kei Tua Mai, a 27 metre long collaborative art piece involving over 1000 community members, thought to be Auckland’s largest community arts project to date. She was also the lead artist on the transformation of the Arataki Visitors Centre Pedestrian Tunnel in 2012, a project that involved 11 Auckland schools. In 2008 she was chosen as lead artist on the Piha Domain Footbridge. The design focuses on our endemic long-finned eel, and aims to educate the public about the incredible journey of this creature and highlight the concerns about its decline.

Angela Tiatia

Yoke is a moving image installation featuring works by Angela Tiatia that contemplate globalisation and capitalisation in the Asia Pacific region. Reflecting on the consequence of out-sourcing production overseas, Tiatia has filmed factory working life here and in China capturing the people behind the anonymous low cost labour force. The undesirable effect of foreign investment on developing countries is highlighted in another work that documents the failed and abandoned Sheraton Resort in Rarotonga.
