Artist

Kalisolaite ‘Uhila

Kalisolaite ‘Uhile, originally from Tonga, creates unique visual art that conveys ideas metaphorically, sparking reflection in viewers. His performances involve immersive experiences, such as living on the streets in Auckland, inhabiting a pig crate, and conducting the waves of the Pacific Ocean from its shore. Uhila’s work delves into cultural, social, and political themes, examining the intersection of traditional Tongan notions about the relationship between people and sacred animals with Western concepts.

Kalisolaite ‘Uhila has exhibited work at Māngere Arts Centre; Aotea Square; and USP Cook Islands, all in New Zealand.

Raffaela Naldi Rossano

Raffaela Naldi Rossano is a multi-disciplinary artist who explores a wide range of media, including installation, video, sculpture, text, drawings and performance. Her artworks are research-driven and process-based, intended as relational vehicles that seek to trigger new possible relationships, both psychological and socio-political, between spaces, bodies and objects. The Mediterranean area, starting from her hometown Napoli, stands at the epicenter of her practice.

Raffaela Naldi Rossano has exhibited works at Swiss Istitute, Milan; TBA21 Academy, Venice; and Kunst Institute, Basel, among others.
