I’m interested in the unfurling emergence of the next generation, in an overarching context of care, gift and long thinking. To realise these interests, I founded the mothermother project, an exhibition platform where female programming is at its heart and kaupapa. This is a project that evolves as artists invite artists to explore a philosophy of exchange. The project fosters connections by providing space for artists to make contact with artists they admire, or who they wish to thank or reach out to, or simply acknowledge, to initiate an exchange of space. The taonga gifted to the project is the artist’s invitation to the next artist. This generational process aims to activate curatorial practice, challenging normative modes of gallery representation. 
My personal practice also embodies this line of enquiry. In these modes of non-hierarchical, collective, circular thinking I’m looking at symbiotic relationships, entanglements and improbable collaborations. Through deciphering the ground and place my work explores how we can amalgamate or fuse with our environments to access alternative futures.
