Bridget Reweti (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāi Te Rangi)
Ko Mauao te maunga
Ko Tauranga te moana
Bridget Reweti's practice includes photography and moving image. Her work explores the representation of New Zealand's iconic landscapes by employing traditional photographic techniques to subvert the scenic view. Reweti's critique on landscape perspectives is informed by customary knowledge of Māori names and narratives. She seeks to show the land as known and inhabited through portraying the shifting set of roles between observer and participant.
