Rangituhia Hollis, Daniel Campbell-MacDonald and Shannon Coulomb: Tahunga | Holt Gallery
26 November 2016 – 26 February 2017
In this fascinating animated work we see both everyday and transcendent potential. Tahunga doesn’t simply tell a tale of Maui, but a more inter-related combination of mythic and figures from whakapapa, such as Rona and Marama. Animation by Rangituhia Hollis, sound design by Daniel Campbell MacDonald and Shannon Coulomb.
Oho Ake (Wake Up) | Foyer Gallery
10 December 2016 – 6 February 2017
Commissioned by Te Tuhi in early 2016, Oho Ake features a psychological journey that takes place in a surreal animated world, punctuated by a transfixing soundtrack of insectile textures and transcendent electronic beats. Throughout the work, allusive references to Māori and Pacific Island culture are integrated into different architectural environments, suggesting a sense of unease with the Western European-dominated drive of modernity.
