Opening Friday 4 July at 5.30pm, opening speaker Marilynn Webb ONZM

Exhibition: 4 July – 30 August 2014

Printmaking: Beyond the Frame is an exhibition of the work of members of the Central Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand (CPCANZ). The works have been selected by John Pusateri, Director of the Auckland Print Studio and Linda Tyler from the University of Auckland. The title of this exhibition refers to the frame that surrounds a two dimensional work, isolating it from the wall and forming a barrier of protection or decoration. It also refers to the contemporary perception of print. In this exhibition artists investigate a variety of technologies and ideas while retaining a common reference point in traditional printmaking processes.

Anne Tonga
"Grills"
Grills is part of an ongoing photographic investigation that explores nifo koula (gold teeth) a popular and relatively new form of Tongan body adornment. Gold used for nifo koula are often second hand jewellery pieces such as rings, earrings or necklaces melted down to create gold covers. For many recipients gold is sourced from heirlooms such as wedding rings that infuse gold teeth with layers of meaning and memory. The process of recycling is a metaphorical process where values, memories and genealogies are refashioned into new forms of body adornment.

This new gendered series examines nifo koula as symbols of Tongan beauty faka’ ofo’ ofa (Tongan beauty). In Tongan culture beauty, faka’ ofo’ ofa, goes beyond the surface of physical attributes and is deeply embedded in social and moral values that uphold and emphasize family, kinship, church and a nationalist ideology based on a constitutional monarchy. Grills explores faka’ofa’ofa through the eyes and voices of Tongan women living in New Zealand revealing the changing notions of beauty.
