The Gaze is Not Something You Have or Use

There is no one universalised experience of ‘otherness’, but how might these individual narratives we live come together to inform a complexity of concerns around the body and digital life?

For the Cyber Nectar opening reception, The Gaze is Not Something You Have or Use (It is a relationship entered into) Hana Pera Aoake, Jordana Bragg and Sophie Giblin aimed to subvert the power and concept of a curator by each inviting two national or international artists and writers to facilitate a visual conversation.

The Gaze is Not Something You Have or Use (It is a relationship entered into) is an exhibition of work and publication by national and international wāhine artists and writers. Each artist creates work that is embodied, marked by their experiences and offers ways of expressing empathy through self care, repetition, unlearning/learning and humour.
