I am going to be working on a short film with Chris Denaro which we hope to have finished by 2020 (when I turn 50!)
We developed the concept for the project in 2017 when our friend Robyn Wright was staying with us and have finally organised our lives so we can schedule time to get it done.
Exhibition title: “He kākano āhau” which translates to “I am a seed”
It is from an ancient Māori proverb (whakataukī) that is well known throughout all Māori tribes in New Zealand.
“E kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Rāngiatea”
“I will never be lost, for I am a seed sown in Rangiātea”
The concept of He Kākano is that of growth, development and expansion, the seed represents greatness. Even before the seed is planted it has the inherent potential to grow into an enormous tree.
Wow! I have always wanted to get on this list! In this eNewsletter which arrived in my inbox this morning Louise Bourgeois and the amazing Juz Kitson exhibitions are also listed - as well as many other amazing people and places like this image from the Whitney. Thank you Brenda May and Art.Base! :D

Very happy and excited to see that 'Bellmore: Roots' (2015) will be going on tour for the next 12 months with the 2016 Flying Arts QRAA exhibition.

What a wonderful experience this was. :D
Jo from Cross Arts and Seb and Bradley from Alaska have been so fantastic to work with. Beth of course has been amazing organising everything for almost an entire year that this project has been going for. There have been so many twists and turns, but for me - participating in this project has really pushed me to some uncomfortable places - and me and my practice has really grown as a result. Thank you to everyone involved in this...
This was the coolest show! I want to call it a happening! Check out their FB page for more photos from the night and the blurb - https://www.facebook.com/events/888042957990221/
'Gash' and 'Pan14' wanted me to tell the amazing BusyBrick team - Erena and Jac - that they had a wonderful time playing at your house and can't wait to come back and play again :D
