Angelique Délano:
Silent Faces II

Angelique Délano presents 30 stylised images out of clay, which explore the reality of child abuse in an extremely non-sensational and sensitive manner. She says that lurid stories provoke horror and disgust, but their effect is to make readers turn away and shut the images out of their minds.

Angelique Délano was born in Santiago de Chile and studied at the School of Fine Arts there, graduating with the Young Artist of the Year award. She has lived in New Zealand since 1990 and in 2002 completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts. 

The gallery is currently closed for install but our café is open 9am–2pm, Monday–Saturday.

Our next exhibition Huarere: Weather Eye, Weather Ear opens on 4 June 2023.
