  • The Drowned World

    The Drowned World, curated by Daniel Michael Satele for Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust, is a virtual exhibition of work by seven New Zealand-based, Pacific artists that explores the intimate connection between human life and water. As the twenty-first century promises rising sea levels and diminishing supplies of drinkable water, negotiating humans’ relationship with this crucial resource will become an increasingly urgent task for societies and individuals. Like the J. G. Ballard novel from which the exhibition takes its name, The Drowned World explores water’s capacity to destroy, sustain and transform human existence, asking how changes to the earth’s waterscape might affect our minds, bodies and social formations. The Drowned World will become available online on December 4 2014, with a launch event being held at Silo Park, Auckland.

     

    Curated by Daniel Satele. Lesieli Finau; Nina Oberg Humphries; Sara Riordan; Elyjana Roach; Salome Tanuvasa; Jasmine Te Hira and Luisa Tora.
