A Place Apart

City Gallery Wellington

Christina Pataialii exhibits at the City Gallery Wellington, alongside Ruth Ige. 

"Christina Pataialii and Ruth Ige traverse abstraction and figuration, their work manifesting an enigmatic in-between.

Pataialii’s energetic compositions revolve around idiosyncratic forms—picket fences, rugby posts, cowboy hats, and boxing gloves—which recall her Auckland childhood. As a child of a Samoan immigrant generation, she explores the implications of living in diaspora. For her, these histories surface and crystallise in icons of pop culture, music, and suburban memories." – Moya Lawson, curator
