Reuben Paterson: He Aha Te Mea Nui…

9 December 2005–27 January 2006

In his show He Aha Te Mea Nui/What Is The Greatest Thing? Maori artist Reuben Peterson rewrites Maoritanga through bling. He uses shimmer disks to picture a postcard beach scene, animating it with an artificial zephyr provided by an electric fan; and creates an 'island' of accumulated glitter-encrusted shoes.
