https://www.qagoma.qld.gov.au Maud Page, former Deputy Director, Collection and Exhibitions takes us on a tour of 'Michael Parekowhai: The Promised Land'.
In 'The Promised Land' discover photography and sculpture spanning more than two decades of Michael Parekowhai's expansive practice.
Parekowhai is one of New Zealand's leading contemporary artists, primarily sculptural, his works often play with scale and space, using humour to comment on the intersections between national narratives, colonial histories and popular culture. Parekowhai is known for bringing together an array of references, sometimes in a single object, with in-jokes and snippets of personal biography sitting side-by-side with art historical playfulness and big-picture cultural critique.
