19 October to 24 November 2018 — Exhibitions He kaˉkano aˉhau (I am a seed)

Nicola Hooper: Zoonoses

This exhibition showcases contemporary artworks from local Maˉori artists and a large collaborative artwork made by Logan’s community. The artists have responded to the exhibition theme of He kaˉ kano aˉ hau (I am a seed). The concept of He kaˉ kano aˉ hau is that of growth, development and expansion, the seed represents greatness. A person, like a seed is inextricably linked to generations who have gone and are yet to come. It cannot be isolated or detached from those connections. In the artists’ words; “although we are no longer living in New Zealand and have limited access to our cultural practices it does not mean that Maˉori are lost; we are still Maˉori and aim to awaken that very essence within all of us through the exhibition”.

Through drawing and lithography Shailer Park artist Nicola Hooper uses fairytale iconology and rhymes to explore concepts surrounding zoonoses: animal diseases that can infect humans. She explores how we perceive certain animals in the context of fear and disease. This project is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

E kore au e ngaro, he kaˉ kano i ruia mai i Rangiaˉtea (I will never be lost, for I am a seed sown in Rangiaˉtea) – from an ancient Maˉori proverb (whakataukaˉ ) The exhibition is an outcome of a community engagement project delivered by Logan Art Gallery which collaborated with the artists to develop new work and lead workshops in Logan City's community. This project is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
