Using only sonic elements as her palette, each portrait captures the wairua and mauri of three mana wāhine Māori – Moana Maniapoto, Te Rita Papesch and Ramon Te Wake.

This immersive installation is a world first. Elevating your aural senses, you are invited to put on a pair of headphones and be submerged into an ethereal plane where kōrero, waiata, the marae, whanau, and whenua converge to create a captivating 360° experience.

Ōtairongo opens on Friday 6 March and continues until Sat 16 May 2020
