New work by Margaret Aull and Nigel Borell
You are warmly invited to Karanga Hokianga, the title and theme of a collaborative exhibition by artists Nigel Borell and Margaret Aull. Karanga Hokianga speaks to whakapapa, whenua and wahi ngaro: those tangible and intangible spaces that exist within our being. Both artists recall their connection to land and place as they forge a conceptual pathway to a hokianga (a returning) of thought and contemplation.
Nigel Borell (Pirirākau, Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Ranginui, Te Whakatōhea, Te Rarawa) is currently the Curator, Maori Art at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.
Margaret Aull has paternal links to Fiji, and Maori (Te Rarawa, Tuwharetoa) heritage. She is the National Arts Registrar at Te Wananga o Aotearoa in Te Awamutu.
