Yuki Kihara and John Pule – Cultural Art Pieces

A joint exhibition at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, NZ

Storytelling, Pacific histories, and politics are powerful drivers in the artwork of John Pule and Yuki Kihara. Follow the arresting narrative in Pule’s 18-part drawing Death of a God, which offers an account of anthropologist Dr Edwin Loeb’s early 20th-century fieldwork in Niue, and see Kihara’s clever critique of the pseudo-science of anthropometry – the measurement of the human individual – in her photographic series, A Study of a Samoan Savage.
