Joining the celebrations for this year’s Puaka Matariki Festival, Blue Oyster welcomes a new exhibition by Ngahuia Harrison, exploring one of Aotearoa’s most precious resources: wai.

You Can Eat Everything But The Rocks will bring together a series of film and photographic assemblages in an installation that considers the mauri of wai in Dunedin, Otago. Whilst this area is of personal significance to Harrison, they symbolise a wider context: considering wai as fundamental to all island-dwelling beings geographically, spiritually, fiscally, politically and ecologically.

Though you stand on the land, you sit also on the sea.

Based in Tāmaki Makaurau with whakapapa in Whananaki and Ōtepoti, Ngahuia Harrison (Ngātiwai, Ngapuhi) is currently a PhD candidate at the Auckland University of Technology. Her practice combines mythopoeic and realist strategies that rupture and destablise linear narratives of traditionally marginalised histories. During the exhibition, Harrison will be undertaking an internship in the Oceanic Art Department at the Metropolitain Museum of Art in New York City.

Ngātiwai Whakatauki

This exhibition is supported by and a part of the 2016 Puaka Matariki Festival Dunedin.
