Kia Ora. What a week. We talk to Irwan Ahmett and Tita Salina, the art duo from Jakarta, whose show 'The Flame of the Pacific' is on at St Paul St Gallery. Their work grapples with the environmental and political problems facing people of the Pacific. They speak to problems in West Papua, Jakarta's newest islands, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and their slightly satirical flag for the Pacific. Quishile Charan is in studio and talks about her upcoming show Fijianx. Charan discusses the latest renderings of ongoing artistic research into her Fijian/Indo-Fijian identity, the significance of the material in the new work, and the many communities she identifies with. To help this artist construct her upcoming show, please visit We also briefly talk about Eleanor Cooper's show at the Physics Room in Christchurch, and give you the weekly opening guide. Cheers!
