Ana Iti

Ana Iti (Te Rarawa) is an artist based in Te-Whanganui-a-Tara. Often employing sculpture, video and text, the artist’s recent work explores the practice of history making through shared and personal narratives, attempting to open up space for more subjective experiences and feeling. Iti graduated from Ilam School of Fine Arts with a BFA in 2012 and is currently studying towards a MFA at Massey University Wellington.
