Fly Me Up To Where You Are: Te Waharoa
Waharoa means gateway. This exhibition is a gateway to understanding the larger project “Fly Me Up To Where You Are” by Auckland artist Tiffany Singh.
Over the final months of 2012 Tiffany is working with groups of children around Auckland to make thousands of dream flags expressing their hopes and dreams for the future. The end-result of her project will be installed in Aotea Square, March 6 - 24.
The process and beauty involved in making this work is captured in this exhibition. Artist and filmmaker Rob George brings to our attention the importance of the work behind the scenes in Fly Me Up To Where You Are: Te Waharoa, a document through film and photography of Tiffany's process and work.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to paint a flag to add to the project. Textile artist Leanne Clayton will be at Artstaton daily between 12-2pm stitching the flags.
This project is supported by Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust in association with Auckland Arts Festival 2013.
During Auckland Arts Festival’s White Night on Saturday 16th March, Artstation is hosting a flag screen-printing workshop from 6-8pm.
Come along and make a flag with Leanne, Rob and Tiffany. The gallery will be open until midnight on the 16/03/2013
Artstation Gallery in open 9-7pm Monday to Thursday 9 - 5pm Friday and 9-4pm Saturday
