This exhibition is supported by the James Wallace Trust and Jan Warburton Charitable Trust and is in association with the Dunedin School of Art, Otago Polytechnic. Hannah Cockfield is the first recipient of the James Wallace & Jan Warburton Graduate Exhibition Scholarship 2017. As for many other Kiwis Cockfield’s cultural identity exists between two worlds of Māoritanga and Westernization, of tradition and modernity, and of custom and innovation. Her practice is born of a profound curiosity with the grey-area of our collective whakapapa, and the desire to reconnect to sleeping roots tied to our biological history. These landscapes tell a story of whānau and the connectedness being a part of a community brings: realising potential relationships through shared experiences and working together which provides people with a sense of belonging.
