Opening celebration: Fri 17 Sep, 6pm-8pm




Inspired by her experience as Tauiwi in Aotearoa, Cindy Huang uses object based installation to recreate a market garden within the gallery space that reflects the sites where many historic Chinese and Māori relationships were cultivated around Aotearoa.

In a continuation of her ongoing practice, Huang interrogates how our written history has skewed in favour of Pākehā historians who have told the stories of others from their perspective, usually presenting a positive colonial narrative. 

A Footnote on New Zealand History instead highlights the lack of written knowledge around Chinese, and specifically Māori-Chinese, history in Aotearoa.
