Exhibition Details


Whakatau and opening: Saturday 9 September, from 5:30pm
Exhibition runs: 9 September – 22 October 2023

Ana Iti’s new film brings together footage from Kāpara-Te-Hau (the salt lakes in Te Tau Ihu, near Te Waiharakeke Blenheim), abstracted diagrams on glass, and a first person text. Hand drawn slowly, the diagrams respond to the movements of air and water, the settling of alluvial sediment and salt. The text appears intermittently; I am trying to connect across two islands and a strait, it begins. As a whole the work registers a desire to span distance, acknowledging the world as an expansive moving body, and the human self as taking many forms.
