For Māori, Te Kore (The Great Nothingness), Te Pō (The Great Darkness) and Te Ao Mārama (The World of Light and Life) are recalled as conceptual states of being that traverse the notion of time. Artist Robert Jahnke and his recent works ponder Māori creation narratives as a way to discuss and locate ones place in the world; in the order of things, and his use of coloured neon and mirrored reflections create spatial readings that are multi-dimensional and seemingly endless. Speakers include Nigel Borell, Māori Art Curator, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Robert Jahnke, Professor of Māori Visual Arts, Massey University. The official opening of Mata Oho is on October 9th, however the exhibition will be available from 22 September – 17 October 2021. Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival is proud to include Mata Oho in our 2021 Programme.
