Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents a solo exhibition featuring sculptural work by Michael Parekowhai, one of New Zealand's most important contemporary artists. His sculpture has been described by Queensland Gallery of Modern Art as “spectacular in appearance and complex in its allusions”, as he subtly navigates the salient cultural phenomena that surround contemporary indigenous identity.

The artist renders quotidian objects extraordinary, blending cultural references from Maori and European traditions. His work often plays with scale and space; using humour to comment on the intersections between national narratives, colonial histories and popular culture.
