Traditionally, the sighting of Matariki was greeted with expressions of grief for those who had died since its last appearance.
Some said the stars housed their spirits. Others made small hāngī and believed when the oven was uncovered, the smells rose to strengthen the stars.
Held by Stars is an exhibition that explores the narratives of two artists and their journey of finding new rhythms after losing loved ones.
Artist Korero – Sat 16 June, 11am-12pm
You are invited to come and hear artists Darcell Apelu, Emily O’Hara and Linda T lead a conversation which explores their current shows, as part of our 2018 Matariki and Auckland Festival of Photography programmes.
