Orissa Keane

Orissa Keane is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Ōtautahi. Driven by an interest in language, systems, and conventions, Keane’s work tends to be light-hearted and experimental; exposing, subverting and convoluting things taken-for-granted. 

Min-Young Her

Min-Young Her  (b. 1997) is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Ōtautahi and is of South Korean heritage. Her’s work primarily focuses on viewer discomfort, creating tactile environments that require a trust in vulnerability. This uneasiness or constructed disconnect is a device to explore the tensions in human relationships and to test the limits of our communicative abilities.
