Diaspora (a dispersion of people from their homeland), a solo exhibition by Ernest Aurora
July 16 - August 7, 2010
Fresh Gallery Otara, Otara Community Courtyard, Otara
Ernest Auora’s reflective collection Diaspora came about through a journey of self-discovery that was made possible through the revival of Pacific arts within this generation.
In this exhibition, Auora expresses his understanding of the migration of Polynesians to Aotearoa through reliving the migration process.
Motifs in this series depict specific attributes of historical significance; the artist has used bold colours, patterns and paddles to share his insight of the cultural wealth that lies beneath the surface of this subject matter.
