MINE (pronounced MI as in Me and NE as in Ned) – to be Assembled 

Do not miss this exhibition by renowned Waiheke sculptor Anton Forde who will be in the heart of the city during Artweek 2020. 

Anton is working with Pounamu to create an exhibition  – MINE, which in Te Reo means "to be assembled" and relates to migration stories, early man and a sense of natural progressive connection. Building on his past works Anton also challenges us to think about perception and experiential viewing. This exhibition will comprise of 15 individual connected Pounamu works that are grounded in history, whilst also looking at the future. 

Bio: Waiheke-based sculptor Anton Forde (Ngāti Ruanui, Gaelige, Gaelic, English) began carving/ creating works when he was eighteen years old. Forde has a number of significant public works in and around Auckland and nationally. His works are also held in private collections internationally. He holds a Masters of Māori Visual Arts with First Class Honours from Toioho ki Āpiti/Massey University. Connection to the land, majesty of nature, and a fascination with themes that are universal to ‘first nation’ cultures are the greatest influences on Forde’s work.
