Carry-on

Bridget Reweti (Ngati Ranginui, Ngai Te Rangi)


Bridget Reweti’s photographic and moving image practice has explored the representation of New Zealand’s iconic landscapes. Informed by customary knowledge of Maori names and narratives and employing traditional photographic techniques Reweti has critiqued perceptions of the landscape. In this new series of hand coloured photographs produced whilst participating in the 2016 Indigenous Visual and Digital Arts Residency at The Banff Centre in Canada, Reweti comments on tourism producing photographs that question what it means to stay and make work in a place that is not your own.

Ngā aho tāruarua in Te Reo Maori references the repetitive or repeating thread, implying an anchoring in customary practice. As an exhibition it brings together the interrelated art practices of five artists that work within the traditions and format of repetition. Repetitive references found in raranga whakairo (weaving patterns), kowhaiwhai designs, geometry and text sequencing are some of the influences. Interconnected these art practices reflect a physical, genealogical and generational link between past knowledge and the present.
