Waiheke Marketplace : April 6th 2016
6 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, APRIL 6, 2016 Artist now in residence AcontemporaryNewZealand and Pacific Island artist arrived on the island this week to begin the first half of a 12-week residence. Michel Tuffery was born in Wellington and is of Samoan, Rarotongan and Mahoi Tahitian heritage. He has been chosen as Wai- heke Community Art Gallery’s Artist in Residence for 2016, which will give him the opportunity to create in a community for a community, gallery director Linda Chalmers says. It will also enable him to research and conceptualise through shared exploration of the community and its environment, she says. ‘‘Michel is renowned for work- ing collaboratively with communities, offering meaningful and informed outcomes.’’ Tuffery’s arts’ practice is known to exceed the boundaries of contemporary media and includes installation and performance artworks that traverse cultural boundaries and defy the usual categorisation. Chalmers says it is a triumph for the gallery to be hosting such a high profile New Zealand artist. ‘‘Michel is in huge demand all around the world and has just been approached to create a sculpture for the Scottish Museum of Contemporary Art. ‘‘His woodcuts, lithographs, ‘‘Michel is renowned for working collaboratively with communities.’’ Linda Chalmers drawings, paintings on tapa cloth and canvas, sculpture, performances and emblematic carvings are the artistic offerings of a keen historian and active participator in contemporary culture.’’ Tuffery says he is keen to explore the island’s early history, landmarks and seascape and work with youth, community groups and local artists. ‘‘We are planning some workshops with local schools and an open studio day every week when the community can drop in for a chat and see what I amup to. ‘‘Last year I spent time in France as an Artist in Residence at the School of Fine Art in Rouen, France, and earlier this year I worked with the Far North District Council to engage youth with a series of hands-on workshops.’’ Tuffery will be based at the Owhanake Barn in Korora Road for six weeks. He will return to complete his residency in August, prior to the opening of an exhibition of his works at the gallery on September 16.
