Bepen Bhana:
Postcards from the edge

_MG_5959

/

A solo exhibition by Auckland-based artist Bepen Bhana exploring the history of New Zealand's landscape in painting and as a backdrop for Bollywood films. Bhana's series of photorealist paintings appropriate both the content and technique of Western European painting and Bollywood film posters to engage with the politics of representation and place. By providing bilingual artwork titles in Te Reo Māori and Hindi, Bhana also pays respect to Tangata Whenua and investigates the possibility for a sense of tūrangawaewae to be developed for immigrants.
