Spring time is heart break

In the exhibition Spring Time is Heart-break several artists have considered tangata whenua relationships with the land, water, natural environment, and indigenous species.

Megan Brady (Kāi Tahu, Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Pākehā) has reconnected with her Ngāi Tūāhuriri whakapapa and the Rakahuri river, creating beautiful handmade carpets with flowing patterns that you can rest on.

Madison Kelly (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Māmoe, Pākehā) prompts us to think about kakī, a critically endangered endemic wading bird, making a sound work, drawing and glass instrument to be played.

Heidi Brickell (Te Hika o Papauma, Rangitāne, Ngāi Tara, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rongomaiwahine, Ngāti Apakura, Airihi, Kōtarani, Tiamana, Ingarihi) uses kelp to make elegant sculptures relating to language and Tangaroa.

Look out for the Spring Time is Heart-break Valentine’s Day late-night on 14 February – a special edition with music, art, and performances.
