Join us to launch Weather Paintings, a new book by Ammon Ngakuru.

Weather Paintings features a new body of work by Ammon Ngakuru. Describing his works as illustrations not bound by any narrative logic, these images chart remembered sightings and found images, changes in atmospheric conditions and plant matter as it flowered and withered over the latter months of 2021. Together, they build less towards a diaristic record than a series of questions about what gets sedimented upon the everyday: about how histories, climatic conditions, systems of naming and structures of power might inform how one looks, and what one sees.

Alongside Ngakuru’s works sits a new text by writer Will Pollard, as well as an extended conversation between Ngakuru and artist and researcher Ngahuia Harrison, which expands on the concerns that have driven the artist’s practice over the last five years.
