Artists: Dennis Berdinner, Leo Semau, Arawhetu Berdinner, Tai Berdinner-Blades & Eva Yocum
Artists will be present through the duration of the exhibition and available for discussion.
We are artists and makers who are connected by blood or marriage. This show explores how people and creativity thrive when given the space and appreciation to do so within a family.
Our exhibition features sculpture, mahi toi, paintings, clay works, ceramics and mixed media. Diverse in expression, our work walks between art and craft. What ties us together is simple yet multilayered - whānau.
Our family intersects across cultures - Pākehā, Māori and Samoan. We stretch out our branches as step-parents/daughters, in-laws and siblings with different mothers. We are a Venn-diagram of interconnecting relationships. Our work reflects the connection, influence and bonds we share.
