We’re sad that due to COVID-19, Memento Moa at the Suter Art Gallery has been postponed till 2021!
Playing off the phrase of “memento mori” that expresses the inevitability of death, Baseman reimagines Aotearoa New Zealand with its unique environment and history. For this exhibition, Baseman will create a mythical land of hybrid creatures—exploring themes of migration, memory, and mortality.
A special edition plush figure of Manny Moa is in production in conjunction with this show. Manny Moa represents the now-extinct gigantic bird native to New Zealand.
