Jamie Berry

"Te Aitanga-a-Mahaki, Rongowhakaata, Ngāti Porou, Ngā Puhi, Aunty Jamie is a Multidisciplinary Artist who creates large scale multimedia artworks that explore indigenous histories while reflecting on identity and whakapapa. Originally from Tūranganui-a-kiwa Gisborne and based in Pōneke Wellington, Jamie draws inspiration from both locations. Jamie’s work engages indigenous issues close to home and on a global scale making connections between past, present, and future, Jamie creates narratives through DNA based soundscape, moving image, and installation. Jamie is also a founding and active member of 7558 Collective." - Artist Statement
