Eve Kireka: Ahokore Ahikaaroa - Keeping the home fires burning
15 August – 1 November | Alcove Gallery

In this installation piece, Kireka has explored the feminine elements of the natural world, creating a narrative using light and mixed media to explore the connections between cosmic influences and the future of humanity. The work has its foundation in traditional Māori beliefs and art forms, but Kireka has taken this foundation and brought her own contemporary approach to the work. Combining a variety of materials, she has explored the connectivity between nature and the manmade. This sculptural piece explores the concept of protection, and speaking for the voiceless and the yet to be born generation.

Eve Kireka (Ngāti Rongomaiwāhine, Tamatakutai, Ngāti Kahungunu)
