Pātaka is delighted to present Lisa Reihana: Nomads of the Sea alongside Te Papa’s presentation of In Pursuit of Venus and New Histories, Reihana’s Kura Moana series of site-specific works, commissioned by the 2022 Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts. Together, these four projects represent the largest survey of Reihana’s moving image and installation works to date.

Following on from Reihana’s acclaimed survey, Cinemania, at Campbelltown Art Centre as part of the as part of the 2018 Sydney Festival program, Nomads of the Sea presents works made over the last 15 years. The exhibition focuses on Reihana’s distinctive exploration of large-scale, immersive installations and offers insight into her weaving together numerous threads of kōrero; from museology, archives and historical accounts, to pūrakau Māori, whakapapa and Māori belief systems.

Pātaka’s exhibition includes the Aotearoa premiere of Te Wai Ngunguru - Nomads of the Sea (2019), previously exhibited in NIRIN, the 22nd Biennale of Sydney (2020).
