KATE PARKER – KOWHAI AND THE GIANTS AT ARATAKI


Artist Kate Parker’s exhibition of intricate paper light boxes returns to the Arataki Visitor Centre, with a few new additions. Originally created during Kate’s eight-week residency last year in the Waitākere Ranges as part of the 2016 Artist in Residence programme.

The exhibition’s story Kowhai and the Giants explores the theme of forest destruction and revival reflecting on the region’s past and future. Each individual light box plays with outlines and layers, and shadows and light to create 2D whimsical pictures. Kate is an actor, theatre director, puppeteer and image designer. She is best known for her work co-founding and co-directing Red Leap Theatre.
