Coastal Cannibals draws on Harrison’s ongoing research into the effects of the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 upon her iwi, Ngātiwai. This ongoing body of work explores the tension between the rights and responsibilities of stewardship by mana whenua, and the impact of industrial expansion around Whangārei Harbour, Mount Manaia and Marsden Point in Northland.
This solo exhibition presents a series of photographs from the Coastal Cannibals series, brought together for the first time in Ōtautahi Christchurch. Harrison’s work is inherently political, yet it is also marked by a loving and careful examination of relationships between people and place, connected through whakapapa.
