Te Ao Mariko: Kereama Taepa | Ramp Gallery

Te Ao Mariko: Kereama Taepa

Opening night: 22 October 2020 from 4pm
Exhibition: 23 October to 13 November 2020

“Te Ao Mariko” explores ideas around how Te Ao Māori engages with the ever-increasing virtual and digital worlds within which we spend most of our time and vice versa. Taepa employs various methods of making artistic work through animation, virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D printing. Ultimately, Taepa’s work intends to create a philosophical platform that enables digital Māori artists to create their work through a 
Māori lens.

Kereama Taepa - Te Arawa and Te Āti Awa Kereama studied for his Bachelor of Māori Visual Arts at Massey University in Palmerston North, and continued on to gain his Master's degree. Taepas involvement in the arts has been broad and varied including bronze technician at the Dibble Arts Foundry and participating in various national Maori arts symposiums, workshops and hui. Taepa taught art within the Te Whare Wānanga O Awanuiārangi Art and Visual Culture Degree for four years and currently teaches within the Bachelor of Creative Technologies at Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.
