underfoot is a group exhibition including works by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists from Aotearoa and Australia for which organic earth matter, whenua, is utilised in a range of poetic ways to quite literally give body and voice to the land.

Connecting recent material enquiries by contemporary artists from the region, the exhibition emphasises a sentient, inextricable relation to earth through a spectrum of geological potentialities. Within increasingly desperate ecological contexts, underfoot draws on precolonial and speculative modes to engage a more reciprocal dialogue between us and the subterranean make-up of our home planet.

Presented in association with Auckland Arts Festival 2024.
