Ngataiharuru Taepa: Pou Rongoā

June 19, 2022 - July 11, 2022

Page Galleries presents, Ngataiharuru Taepa (Te Arawa, Te Āti Awa) exhibition Pou Rongoā, featuring the commanding three-panel kōwhaiwhai work He ata ki runga, he ata ki raro (2020), originally commissioned for the landmark exhibition Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori Art curated by Nigel Borrell for Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.In the accompanying exhibition catalogue for Toi Tū Toi Ora, Borrell writes: “Mystifying and mesmerising, it was inspired by the concepts found in karakia, or prayers and chants, that pertain to wānanga – ideas about knowledge acquisition, growth and learning. As these kōwhaiwhai patterns meander across the picture plane, their form a horizon line that is envisaged as the start of a new dawn, a new era and time.”

Opening night: Thursday 19 June, 4-6pm
