Corporeal Cacophonies - Tyrone Te Waa

Enjoyment accented with ritual is a salient quality of Tyrone Te Waa’s practice. Working to manoeuvre material, shape and colour, the Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland-based artist has produced sculptures and installations that weave multiple traditions and forms of knowledge into holistic ‘bodies.’ These figurative bodies unify and distinguish concurrent ideas in mātauranga Māori.¹
