Join us for Some Meetings & Ends, the closing event for Pieces Spaces Species. This event offers an opportunity to hear from Yana Dombrowsky-M'Baye, Lucy Hill and Taarn Scott, and learn about the development of the exhibition and their ideas and thoughts behind art-making.
The event will start with an artist talk featuring Yana Dombrowsky-M’Baye, Lucy Hill and Taarn Scott.
Following the artist talk, join us for a guided walk around the city block of Blue Oyster and experience the urban surroundings that informed the exhibition.
To conclude, we invite you to participate in an exchange of ephemera, objects, thoughts, stories and writings, and uncover some of the stories and connections that have shaped the exhibition over refreshments.
No RSVP is required and all are welcome to attend.

Yana Dombrowsky-M’Baye is an artist and spatial designer of Senegalese/European descent based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Dombrowsky-M'Baye’s practice is a poetic and collaborative inquiry into material and immaterial temporalities across human and more-than-human scales. Through iterative and ritualistic processes, these temporalities are speculated upon through site-responsive installation, artefacts, gifting and trace documentation, piecing together fragments of genealogical and geological stories.
Lucy Hill studied at Dunedin School of Art/Te Pūkenga, graduating in 2022. Hill’s work explores the day-to-day environments around her home in Ōtepoti through sculpture, ceramics and walking. Her SITE 2022 installation Creatures of Earth was an immersive collaboration between hand and clay evoking the relationships between human and non-human worlds.
Taarn Scott is an artist from Ōtepoti who studied at Elam School of Fine Arts. Scott is interested in the tactile and the poetic. Recent exhibitions include the group show (Grow)home, Anteroom, Ōtepoti and Ngā Hau o Tāwhirimātea with Hana Pera Aoake and Riki Gooch, Enjoy, Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Scott has also collaborated on a series of exhibitions with Aoake and Wesley John Fourie: Invasive Weeds (or I wish I could give you the world, but I was only given mud, rot, and the bones of a half-eaten fish), The Physics Room, Ōtautahi; The Future of Dirt, RM Gallery, Tāmaki Makaurau; and An Endless Sky of Honey, Meanwhile, Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
