Every inked image participates in a migration like shift from its start point, be that a plate, block, screen or file, to place(s) where it will be seen. The printed image sits on a new ground, always in the here and now, separated from yet connected to its origins. All of us here in Aotearoa carry the legacy of recent or long distant migrations to the land of the long white cloud. We are connected to, and separated from, the rest of the world by salt water. We live close to the sea, it nourishes us, connects us to home and opens us up to discovery. The word ‘wansolwara’ comes from the Solomon Islands. The word comes from the pidgin dialect and literally means ‘one salt water’. The notion arising from this is one ocean, one people. Come and see the 5th IMPressive Print show. This year the show is open to artists who develop work from a practice that acknowledges current and historical print practices. Curators/artist talk: Saturday 29 November, 1pm.
28 October-30 November
Nathan Homestead, 70 Hill Road, Auckland.
