Jon Jeet, a musician of Maniapoto and Fijian Indian descent, will show his corten steel toki. Traditionally, Māori created and used the toki – a cutting tool made from pounamu or stone – for a number of purposes including gardening and wood carving.

Another painting by Pacific Sisters, first exhibited at the Hawai’i Triennial earlier this year, consists of eight full-body portraits created in collaboration with photographer Pati Tyrell. Each shows an ancestor and answers the question “Who are you?”.

The event will contribute to the vibrancy of the central city and build on the heritage of creativity and innovation that Christchurch was well known for, McCormick said.

Several events are planned for the opening this week including free guided tours led by managing curator Jamie Hanton, who will provide information about the artworks and artists. He will also talk about the creative process and his vision for the season. Bookings are required.
