Exhibition Details


Pātaka Art + Museum warmly invites you to the opening of Ngā Pari Tai Rua.

Ngā Pari Tai Rua considers the flow of the tides, which represent the flow of narratives and their migration from place to place and iwi to iwi. This title reflects the two tides that flow within the artist, Shannon Te Rangihaeata Clamp, the tides of Parirua and the tides of Whakatū, representing his iwi and hapū. Ngāti Koata in Whakatū and Ngāti Toa Rangatira in Parirua.

Based on taonga tuku iho, pūrākau and whākapapa, Shannon's kaupapa relies on mātauranga-a-iwi and mātauranga-a-hapū (iwi and hapū knowledge systems) to enhance Māori visual concepts and stories.
