in situ

in situ is an exhibition I organised with Elisabeth Alani at Lake House Arts November 2014. Artists are Salome Tanuvasa, Elisabeth Alani and myself.

Through language we have an innate ability to transcend culture, age and class. The everyday encountering of language through conversation, enables us to understand each other. Types of language even among a small geographical area such as Auckland varies immensely crossing suburbs and therefore socio-economic barriers. Elisabeth, Lana and Salome come from South, West and East Auckland. While on paper they may appear similar as NZ born female artists of a shared lineage, they all have incredibly varied experiences of being Pacific Women.
