Samoan-born artist Ioane Ioane’s multidisciplinary practice involves sculpture, installation and performance. Dedicated to Keoni Ioane, Meet Me in Hawaiki pays tribute to Ioane’s deceased son and the journey and connections between father and son. In this work, the mysterious and mythical place of Hawaiki is referred to and Ioane meditates on the possibility of being reunited with his son. Throughout the Pacific, there is a geographically-based point of departure, a space of journey into the spiritual realm; a place from which we are born and to which we go to, after death.
The opening night will also encompass a one-off performance by Ioane Ioane and guests.
