Antje Barke
Seven Islands
4-28 August 2021

Seven Islands is a solo showing of new work by Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist Antje Tamae Barke. As a meditation of narrative projected onto periphery spaces, these works explore the interpretation of two locations; a road trip in Quebec in 2017 and wanderings in Tāmaki Makaurau.
