Hulita Koloi: Malaloi
Hulita Koloi: Malaloi

Malaloi—presented in Te Uru's window space—speaks directly to the urban environment, comprising a scaffold structure upon which concrete-dipped garments donated by Koloi's family and her wider Pacific community are hung. It addresses the separation of people from the land, the effects of industrialisation and capitalism within Pacific communities, and the shared responsibility of humanity, past, present and future, to tread lightly on the earth.

Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Whanganui photographer Tia Ranginui (Ngāti Hine Oneone) puts her own spin on patupaiarehe, sometimes described as Māori fairy folk. Said to live in the mountains and forests, away from people, in Ranginui’s work they are out and about in the Whanganui suburbs of Gonville and Castlecliff. They still conjure the mist, only now it's supplied by smoke machines and vapes.
