The Cold Islanders

Saturday August 26 to Sunday December 3, 2017
Waikato Museum, Hamilton

The physical adjustment to the cold winters of Aotearoa would have been difficult for Maaori, equally so for the second wave of Pacific migrants on arrival here.

The artists in this exhibition trawl their oceans within through dreams, grandparents’ watery memories and droplets of inherited culture to find their coordinates. Often their only navigational compass is the salt water in their blood which yields ancient chants and images ensuring their oceans will never freeze.
