Tiffany Singh’s site-specific installations deal with notions of ritual and sacredness. They are multi-sensory works with swarms of ribbons, flowers and bells. Her interdisciplinary artwork at Uxbridge brings together the diverse peoples and communities of Owairoa to collectively reflect on place and ancestral wisdom.
Tiffany is of Indian, Māori, Pacific Island and Pakeha decent, and is based in Auckland. The coming together of these different cultures and world-views is evident in her artistic practice. Since completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours at Elam School of Fine Arts in 2008, Tiffany has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the 18th Biennale of Sydney, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, the Auckland Art Gallery, and more. The intercultural weight of her 2013 project Fly Me Up To Where You Are at Pataka Museum was recognised with an award by the Human Rights Commission.
