Wellington's Suite Gallery presents 'Iti'

Photography by Birgit Krippner
The exhibition will show a collaboration between Tame Iti, high profile Tūhoe Māori activist and artist, and Birgit Krippner, Austrian-born and Wellington-based photographer.

Suite promises "an intimate lens" on Tame Iti, the Tuhoe people and Te Urewera through Krippner's photography. 

Krippner has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, and will take the photographs of Iti to a showing at San Francisco's The Harvey Milk Photographic Center in April.​

Also on show will be oil on canvas and sculptural works by Tame Iti, including an installation work straight from an occupation site in Te Uruwera – a key piece by the artist.

The exhibition opens on February 19 and runs until March 7. Both artists will attend the opening.
