Artist Spotlight: Ashleigh Taupaki

For her new work ‘Paradise’ displayed on Tautai’s outdoor exhibition space, Moana Wall, Ashleigh steps away from the comfort of her sculptural practice and shares writing and drawing on a large scale to envision her Nana’s experience as a migrant from Samoa.

“I guess what I’m trying to get across is that people who migrated here from the islands, they came here for a certain paradise and that’s not necessarily the case.”
