Podcast: Black Bird

Author: Sasha Greig, Front of House Team Leader

Recently opened at The Dowse, Black Bird is the first major survey exhibition of the works of Samoan and Ngāi Tahu artist, Lonnie Hutchinson.

In this episode of the podcast, Chloe and I sat down with Lonnie to discuss the show. Being a major survey exhibition of an artists that works across a wide range of media, we were very interested in her process and how the media and the concepts drive each other in a mutual relationship. But Lonnie talked about far more than that... In this episode you can hear her talk about her love of working on a large scale, the story behind her work Lole Lole, and her hopes and visions for the Christchurch rebuild and the Ngāi Tahu involvement.
