Ends broken off by the wind. Imprints from fingers, nails, stones. Particles of sand preserved by glazing. These unexpected textures act as reminders of the many places the chimes were made – from remote Fogo Island in Canada to New York City and Te Henga in Aotearoa. They bring the outside world into the gallery.
SHE’S TALKING TO THE WALL is a complicated map of locations, experiences, and relationships – hundreds of small gestures, creating something larger than themselves.
Ka pakaru ngā pito e te hau. He hāraunga nā ngā matimati, ngā maikuku, ngā kōhatu. Ko ngā korakora o ngā kirikiri ka whakaukatia mā te whakapaka. Ko ēnei kākano poka noa e tohu ana i ngā wāhi maha i mahia ai ngā tangihanga, e kawe mai ana i te ao o waho ki roto i te wharetoi.
He mahere uaua a SHE’S TALKING TO THE WALL o ngā wāhi, ngā wheako, me ngā hononga – e hia rau ngā tohu iti, ka waihangatia mai he mea whakamīharo.
