Neihana Gordon-Stables (Ngāti Kurī) is an artist based in Auckland. Neihana's practice seeks to reshape and distort common stereotypes of takatapui that exist through the humour that is already present among his peers. Neihana’s work critically examines dominant cultural narratives and is presented as both a public intervention and installation. This benefits and encourages his community to engage. Currently Neihana’s work is exploring romantic and platonic queer relationships, the desire, love, longing and turmoil that occur in all of them. Neihana is a former facilitator at MEANWHILE Gallery (NZ).
