margaret aull

24 June - 12 July 2014

Margaret Aull's work reflects the tensions of culture and identity between her Fijian and Maori ancestry. Her work is the ongoing effort to find equilibrium between the two cultural powerhouses by investigating the relationships of whakapapa, faith and politics. Aull investigates the notion of Tapu/Tabu, specifically of objects and personal items created as visual representations of ancestors and gods, and the relationships that existed with their owners and communities during their "life" time.

In 2002, Aull studied a Diploma in Maori/Pacific and Indigenous Art, at Te Wananga o Aotearoa (where she currently works as Arts Collection Curator), before completing a Bachelor of Media Arts at Waikato Institute of Technology, and a Master of Fine Arts from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design.
