Bridget Reweti’s photographic and moving image practice explores the representation of New Zealand’s iconic landscapes by employing traditional photographic techniques to subvert the scenic view. Informed by customary knowledge of Maori names and narratives, she has critiqued perceptions of the landscape. In this solo exhibition of hand coloured photographs, Reweti comments on notions associated with tourism. Produced whilst participating in the 2016 Indigenous Visual and Digital Arts Residency at The Banaff Centre in Canada, these photographs question what it means to stay and make work in a place that is not your own.
Exhibition Celebration: Saturday 18 June, 11am
