The Centre Does Not Hold Inas Halabi Curated by Jess Clifford

The Centre Does Not Hold is an exhibition in three parts by the Palestinian artist Inas Halabi. Across a sound installation and two moving image works that address different regions mired in colonial power structures, Halabi considers the landscape as a living archive from which to excavate the (in)visible sediments of trauma and slow violence. In its invitation to look closely, The Centre Does Not Hold explores the malleability of sound and image, and in doing so, unearths histories hiding in plain sight.

Hiraeth Sylvan Spring and Holly Walker

Hiraeth is a Welsh word describing a spiritual longing for a place that we have never been. The lost ancient places we imagine our ancestors would stomp their feet into their lands, it is the grief we struggle to locate in our bodies, a dislocated homesickness for a motherland we have never belonged to. The offerings of this exhibition illustrate our intimate and awkward rituals of becoming truly Pākehā—tangata Tiriti on our haerenga towards becoming familiar with the layers of our cultural identities and realities, on this whenua and in relation to its people.
