This sky, too, is folding under you

Natasha Matila-Smith

Auckland based artist Natasha Matila-Smith’s practice addresses the restrictive representation and exoticisation of contemporary Pacific culture. In This sky, too, is folding under you she investigates these ideas through a process of considered visual decisions and the use of nostalgic materials, drawing inspiration from pop-culture as well as familiar and romanticised iconography.


Panel Discussion, Saturday 25 February, 11am

A. D. Schierning, 'Glossopteris' (2016)

At a Loss

A. D. Schierning

Although the impact of humanity on the natural world is undeniable, the Earth has been in an ever-shifting and self-evolving process for millions of years, as is evident by the long history of extinct plants and animals not related to human presence.

At a Loss explores progress, loss and meaning through artist A. D. Schierning’s painted biological accounts of extinct and endangered plant species on native wood samples. Schierning questions our ability to both create and disturb balance, whilst paying homage to the natural world and its mysterious powers.
