MEDIA RELEASE: Aotearoa forest, flora and whenua enrich Depot Artspace gallery for Matariki 2018



Two thought-provoking exhibitions honouring the natural environment will be on display at Depot Artspace from 14 to 25 July for the Matariki Festival 2018.

Forest has the Blues is a printmaking installation project that draws the unique plant life of Aotearoa into the gallery space to boldly question the limits of plant regrowth and regeneration in a high density urban environment like Auckland.

In keeping with this theme, the exhibition Whenua: Land curated by Depot Artspace Mฤori Liaison, Jermaine Reihana, celebrates distinctive perceptions of and relationships to whenua of artists both past and present.
