Turumeke Harrington – Biography

(Kāi Tahu)
b. 1992, New Zealand.
Based in Wellington.

Turumeke Harrington has a background in industrial design and fine arts. An interest in whakapapa, space, colour, and material sees her regularly creating large sculptural installations at the intersection of art and design. Harrington’s clarity of form and function is supplemented by a pragmatism and a commitment to making that is at once playful and provocative. Her sympathetic approach to materials combines with a bold colour palette and sharp humour to create engaging works that speak to the artist’s own personal relationships, cultural anxieties, and everyday musings.
