Top Maori Artists Exhibit in Paris Church.

Two of NZ’s leading Maori artists have paired up to exhibit their works in a Catholic church in Paris.

Titled TE AO The Light the exhibition is the latest creations of artists Tracey Tawhiao (Ngai Te Rangi) and George Nuku (Ngati Kahungunu).

“Our focus is on Light and Love the two best things about any religion. We focus on Light and all its manifestations. This is integral to a Maori worldview. Maori have names for all the different kinds of light and each name tells you a lot about the world” say’s Tracey Tawhiao.

The Saint Rock Church is one of the oldest and most famous churches in Paris located next to the Louvre.

“I wanted to create something that made sense in a church. We couldn’t attach any thing to the walls, so it immediately became interesting figuring out how to use the space. Basically, it’s held together by string and a prayer” say’s George Nuku.

Tawhiao and Nuku have showcased their art nationally and internationally for 20 years. The exhibition closes on 28th September 2012.
