Raúl Ortega Ayala “The Zone” – Te Tuhi

“Since his first visit to the area surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in northern Ukraine in 2013, Mexican-born artist Raúl Ortega Ayala has been involved in a seven-year research project centered on what he calls ‘sites of amnesia and historical detritus’.”

Currently showing at Te Tuhi in Pakuranga, this is a great exhibition to go and engage in post lock-down. Opticmix printed some large format photographic prints that are displayed alongside large scale wallpaper prints.

 

“The Zone” is a current exhibition running until the 16th of August 2020.
