Exhibition Details


Bergman Gallery, Auckland is pleased to present an artists talk by Hulita Koloi, Terje Koloamatangi, Sēmisi Potauaine, and Benjamin Work.

In the Tongan dictionary, Tukufakaholo translated in a Pālangi context, is defined as inheritance or hereditary but in a Tongan world view the definition is much broader than that. Tukufakaholo could be translated as to pass knowledge/wisdom on, where to pass does not just mean us or the future, it has temporal meaning that relates to the past, the present and the future. In this we become conduits for ways of being and knowledge repositories through our art practice.
