Hiria Anderson (Rereahu, Ngāti Maniapoto, Ngāti Apakura) was raised in her grandparents’ home in Te Rohe Pōtae King Country  and today lives in her whānau homestead in Ōtorohanga. Her practice is focussed upon painting the everyday lives of the people in her community; environments that reveal the nuanced connections between Māori culture and 21st century life.

Anderson writes: “Phrased by our ancestors, ‘Te Ao Hurihuri’ literally means ‘everchanging world’. But the term goes deeper in its reference to Māori cosmology and whakapapa, as well as to the modernity that, for better or worse, has impacted Te Ao Māori in these times of COVID.”

Te Ao Hurihuri – At the end of the Beginning is Anderson’s third solo show at Tim Melville and her first in the Main Gallery space.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures. The exhibition can be viewed online here.
