Shannon Te Ao: Tēnei Ao Kawa Nei

11 Mar to 23 Jul 2017

Shannon Te Ao is of Ngāti Tūwharetoa descent and one of New Zealand’s leading artists working in performance and video installation. Working from within the Māori paradigm, Te Ao produces sensual cinematic experiences. 

He is interested in the varied social implications formed when text is presented in performance, video installation or printed works and his works are honest, unmediated and intimate in their response to human tenderness and longing.

Te Ao reveals an essential human beauty seldom seen in contemporary art through colour, sound and performance. The Wellington-based artist won the 2016 Walters Prize, New Zealand’s most prestigious contemporary art award for the works two shoots that stretch far out (2013–14) and okea ururoatia (never say die) (2016)
