Join us for an exhibition talk with Luke Shaw and Phoebe Hinchliff who will discuss their current exhibition Somewhere Between Nothing and Nowhere with artist and curator Nathan Pōhio. In conversation with Pōhio, Shaw and Hinchliff will speak to their current collaborative exhibition which explores liminal spaces and ‘the journey’ alongside their shared research interest in Western films.

Nathan will join the discussion via Zoom.

She is also interested in the conversation between language and land. Last year she showed in Domino Domino at The Physics Room and in 2019 she exhibited in Sympathetic Resonance at The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi O Whakatū, Whakatū.
