A Delicate Balance / Rongo Taketake a Tāne examines the relationship between people, landscape and the kauri forest ecology.

Inhabiting the space where concepts of art, science and cultural knowledge intersect, The Kauri Project is a curatorial endeavour which examines the relationship between people and landscape, focusing on our unique and threatened indigenous kauri forest ecology. Encompassing sound, performance, photography and sculptural installation, A Delicate Balance / Rongo Taketake a Tāne brings together artists from across the North Island to explore how we 'listen' and speak back to this environment.

Curated by Ariane Craig-Smith and Chris McBride.
