IOIOIOIOIOIO: FRED HARRISON
AND TRACEY TAWHIAO

 

Most world traditions insist that there is a hidden order that unifies all aspects of the Universe. Some of these visualisations take the form of developing mandalas, such as the Sri Yantra formation. Others prefer to engage in dances where the movements and music are in tune with these geometric patterns. Still others prefer to assemble, sculpt or draw these forms, whose cornerstone of knowledge is embedded in sacred geometry.

Using the languages of geometry, sound, and binary code, Māori artists Tracey Tawhiao and Fred Harrison depict the Creator, known in Te Ao Māori as IO, through sacred geometry that exudes mātauranga Māori; the knowledge originating from the ancestors.

Presented in association with Auckland Arts Festival.
