(AUCKLAND).- With less than a month to opening on 10 May, New Zealand artists participating in the 5th Auckland Triennial are revealed today. Names include Janet Lilo, Tahi Moore, Peter Robinson and Palmerston North artist group Saffronn Te Ratana, Ngataiharuru Taepa and Hemi Macgregor.

Ten artists and collectives from around New Zealand will present their work at If you were to live here …, the free three-month festival of contemporary art that will be the largest Auckland Triennial to date.

Curated by Hou Hanru, one of the most influential curators in the world today, the Triennial will see local and international artists transforming Auckland spaces. The Triennial invites discussion, the exchange of ideas and creates opportunities to collaborate and connect with different partners and communities in and out of the city.

New Zealand artists of the 5th Auckland Triennial include:

• Interdisciplinary artist Janet Lilo’s new video and sound installation, Right of Way, 2013, which explores the Auckland artist’s neighbourhood and the people who share her driveway. Right of Way captures the languages, music and sounds around Lilo’s home in Avondale, Auckland and includes a 4,000 image photomontage. Right of Way will show at Artspace, Karangahape Road.

• Auckland-based artist Tahi Moore works across video, sound, sculpture and performance. Exhibiting at Gus Fisher Gallery, Shortland St, Moore uses the iconic building’s architecture and history, including its former life as the first purpose built government radio station, to create playful sculptural objects and five sci-fi videos.

• Auckland artist, Peter Robinson was invited by Hou to create a site-specific work at Auckland Museum. Playing with the hierarchy of workplaces and museum protocols, Robinson asks museum staff to place colour-coded ‘sticks’ amongst the museum’s exhibited artefacts. Robinson has recently exhibited at the 18th Biennale of Sydney (2012) and will present at the upcoming 13th Istanbul Biennale.

Saffronn Te Ratana, Ngataiharuru Taepa and Hemi Macgregor are contemporary Māori artists from Palmerston North who combine their individual practices. Exhibiting at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, their work Ka Kata Te Po, 2011, is a large, striking installation exploring expressions of tribal authority and the suppression of tribal voices surrounding the 2007 Urewera incident.

‘Hou's Triennial offers its New Zealand artists the opportunity to be involved in a 'laboratory' for bold new thinking about the local, while taking part in a conversation of international interest’, says Manager of the 5th Auckland Triennial, Louise Pether. ‘While addressing current issues on Auckland's transformation into a multicultural super city, local artists are imaginatively engaging with the city on a number of topics - from the use of our water resources to what makes a neighbourhood, and issues of power and authority.

‘The Triennial is about creating moments for New Zealanders to connect globally, with some interesting relationships and collaborations being forged through Hou's influence’.

The Auckland Triennial is New Zealand’s premier international contemporary art exhibition. Since its inception in 2000, it has worked with partners across the city to develop and present a lively and engaging contribution to the conversation about art and its relationship to the wider world.
