Transmission is a major exhibition by award-winning, multidisciplinary artist Kereama Taepa.
Taepa’s practice demonstrates the long tradition of innovation within te ao Māori. His use of virtual reality and 3D printing has infused whakairo (carving) with new modes of address, interaction and portability that extends from the gallery walls to everyday dress.
Transmission explores the infinite possibilities of digital technologies to transmit mātauranga Māori. Taepa considers digital technologies beyond their immediate application, locating them within Māori paradigms that simultaneously connect to stories and offers space to embed personal narratives as a way forward into the future.
Transmission runs Thursday 12 March to Sunday 3 May
