Depot Artspace 28 Clarence Street, Devonport, Auckland

Across Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa, the Great Ocean of Kiwa or Pacific Ocean*, intergenerational knowledge-sharing is central to the art forms sustained and activated by women. Matrilineal is an opening for artists who inhabit spaces created by their female ancestors, whether through the inheritance of weaving techniques and visual histories, the collective practice of making ngatu (Tongan tapa cloth), or expressions of feminine empowerment.

Denis Bourke Paintings

This exhibition covers areas of interest that have been at work concurrently over several decades in Denis Bourke’s long-standing practice. Bourke has travelled widely across Aotearoa New Zealand, and is a longtime illustrator and recorder of land features. 


Bobbie Gray – Insignificant Other

Insignificant Other brings everyday life into art through magnifying borer ‘galleries’ found in the native timber floors of the artist’s home.

Poised between sculpture and painting, these hand-routed, human-scale engravings are traces of the vast, yet complex realities that lie beneath the surface of our own existence. The works read as abstract paintings, yet the mark making delves beneath the surface, revealing physical depth. The lines left are evidence of life lived, in parallel with our own.
