Studio One Toi Tū: Creative Residents Exhibition
Past and present worlds collide in Nostalgia_Ultra the debut exhibition by DA-KU Set, which is also a homage to Māori and Pacific peoples, and on a personal note – their Dads.
Illustrations rendered in the graphic visual style of classic arcade games depict the societal battles Māori and Polynesian people have fought and continue to face.
The works evoke a sense of ‘nostalgia’ as a means of questioning negative realities and positive memories to examine glitches in New Zealand's history.
