Swallowing Geography 
8 October 2021 – 13 February 2022

Swallowing Geography is an exhibition that explores our relationship with land and place. It is about how we absorb the landscape and our built environment and how we ingest or take in the histories of sites and places both explicit and oblique.

Shona Rapira Davies’ installation addresses a devastating colonial history specific to Taranaki – a history of exploitative practices – and the omnipresence of people, the land and sea.
