  • Taku toi kahurangi / My precious jewel 01/06/2019 - 30/06/2019

    Inseperable Huia 2016

    As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2019, Alberton is delighted to host Taku toi kahurangi / My Precious Jewel, a collection of photographic works and a site specific installation by celebrated New Zealand artist Fiona Pardington MNZM.

    Museums, archives, and historic places are both repositories of stories and versions of history that Pardington finds irresistible. Her photographs breathe life into inanimate objects, achieving what she describes as 'a radiant point of encounter – a punctum or a tear in the real from out of which steps a life revived, reconstituted or transubstantiated'.
