Join Gus Fisher Gallery for an opening day talk with artists Arapeta Ashton and Laura Duffy, both presenting new work as part of the upcoming exhibition The sentiment of flowers.

Arapeta Ashton is takatāpui artist of Ngāti Mahuta, Ngāti Whanaunga, Ngāti Porou and Muriwhenua decent researching the revival and preservation of Māori cloth making traditions through performance and time-based mediums.

Laura Duffy is from Turanganui-a-Kiwa and has lived and worked in Te Whanganui-a-Tara for the past decade. She works between video, sculpture, and installation and is interested in exploring queer pleasure or joy derived from failure, error, and disgust.

All are welcome, no RSVP required.
