Ammon Ngakuru
Opening Preview: Friday 9 June, 5:30pm

Artist talk: Saturday 10 June, 12noon

A Shelter for Amnesic Relatives considers the safe room, a space common in American survivalist culture and online discourse. As a thoroughly private form of shelter, the safe room is meant as a refuge from a future or perpetually imminent external threat or catastrophe—a space intentionally closed off from the outside world, and a means of escape.

Ammon Ngakuru is an artist living and working in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland. Considering ideas of distance, place and (un)belonging, he often utilises both personal and public archival information as a guide in the production of installation based works.

Recent group projects include: Driving from the nearest city, the roads are gradually smaller, stonier, less well kept, with Charlotte Drayton for the Stazione Di Topolò, Italy (2016); Since 1984 - He aha te ahurea-rua?, St Paul Street Gallery (2015).
