Angela Tiatia’s first solo exhibition, Foreign Objects opens at Fresh Gallery Otara, South Auckland in September.
Foreign Objects explores the consumption of objects, day-to-day exchanges and rituals that have become modern mythology and are used to connect with the Pacific. This exploration ranges from the harmless and humorous to the injurious and absurd.
Angela Tiatia is an Auckland-based artist, raised in both Otara and Samoa. She works in installation, video and performance, and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from AUT University in 2010. Past works have been exhibited in the de Young Museum (San Francisco), 100th Street Salon (New York) and City Gallery Wellington (NZ).
The opening reception for Foreign Objects is at 6pm on Thursday 8 September. The exhibition is open to the public from 9 September – 1 October 2011. Join Angela for a discussion about the exhibition from 12pm, Saturday 17 September – all welcome.
