'Orion', wallpaper, 2017 by Louisa Afoa
44.5cm x 32.5cm (including frame)
These artworks were part of the exhibition "I'll See you at Orion" at Corbans Art Gallery, Tamaki Makaurau in 2017.
This exhibition takes its title from the street that Louisa Afoa's great Aunty and uncle decided to 'home' after they migrated from Samoa in the '50s. This house also became home to Louisa's father later in the '70s when he was able to move to Aotearoa. Interested in the memories, histories and knowledge embedded in the space, the artist explores through various mediums her relationship - one that is both physical and embodied - with the 'home' that fostered what it means to be Samoan.
Please note the work you’re purchasing is a piece of the original wallpaper that lived in the gallery space so you will find that the paper is textured due to the materiality of the object.
