R. Boudoir
Abigail Aroha Jensen

Black mould tracing kōwhaiwhai, pūngāwere miro the silk threads that dress her chandelier. She belongs to an ephemeral estate. She re-imagines ngā taonga tuku iho, catching threads of tukutuku in order to ascend the pou-tame-hine. It’s whakaahuatanga. – transformation in the face of adversity, towards whakakotahitanga – reintegration of time and space. Romantic she is. It’s all very decadent. Sickly sweet.

Home Sweet Home by artist Arapeta AshtonComing up at RM

Home Sweet Home
Arapeta Ashton 

Home Sweet Home is an queer ontological experiment by multidisciplinary creative Arapeta that pulls together a plush collection of deeply considered movements, experiences and koorero, together into a new landscape in which dance, song, koorero, kapa haka and whatu kaakahu all come together to generate wholly new environment, with a foundational purpose of pure enjoyment. Like seafoam, churned up from the colliding of waves and tides, the birth of an entirely fresh experience can build outwards towards new discoveries.

A safe space is a space where the LGBTQI+ community can freely express themselves without fear. It is a space that does not tolerate violence, bullying, or hate speech towards the LGBTQI+ community.

A safe space does not guarantee 100% safety, rather, it’s a space that has your back if an incident (violence, bullying, or hate speech) were to occur.
