Turumeke Harrington is May’s Artist in residence at Stoddard Cottage

Visual Arts

In May, Stoddard Cottage welcomes their final Stoddart Cottage-Purau Artist-in-Residence of the year, Turumeke Harrington (Kāi Tahu, Rangitāne), who is currently based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.

During her residency she will be working on the research project “A significant contribution to New Zealand landscape art”, which explores Ngāi Tahu relationships to whenua through consideration of both the artist’s own whakapapa and the representation of the landscape within New Zealand art history. The research will result in the production of new artworks, including sculpture, installation and painting.

Turumeke has a background in industrial design and fine arts. An interest in whakapapa, space, colour, and material sees her regularly create large sculptural installations at the intersection of art and design. She has an MFA from Te Kunenga ki Pūrehuroa Massey University, a BFA from Ilam School of Fine Arts, and a Bachelor Design Innovation from Victoria University of Wellington, exhibiting widely across Aotearoa.
