Curated by Sorcha Carey and Bruce E. Phillips.
Te Tuhi is proud to present With the sun aglow, I have my pensive moods, a major new work by Wellington-based artist Shannon Te Ao (Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and a joint commission between Te Tuhi and the 2017 Edinburgh Art Festival.
This two-channel video installation features footage filmed in three separate locations in Aotearoa New Zealand, documenting a dance, a highway and a farm.
These visuals also contain a myriad of references that create a convergence between Te Ao’s personal socio-geography, his tīpuna and the imaginings of other artists, directors and musicians from distinct times and places.
Join us for a guided tour of Shannon Te Ao’s exhibition With the sun aglow, I have my pensive moods by Te Tuhi Artistic Director Gabriela Salgado on Saturday 25 November, 3pm-4pm.
