Nathan Pohio: Tribes: Waitaha, Kati Mamoe, Kai Tahu.

Nathan Pohio was a Walters Prize nominee in 2016, and represented Aotearoa at Documenta 14 in Athens Greece and Kassel Germany 2017.

As an artist Pohio calls upon Kai Tahutanga in the face of colonial objectives - coded by cinematic histories, the 4th cinema, sampling, and the avant garde.

As a curator Pohio follows principles of Tikanga Maori and Kai Tahutanga to bring a Kai Tahu perspective to the exhibition and public programmes at Te Puna o Waiwhetū Christchurch Art Gallery. 

Pohio is a board member of The Physicsroom and a founding member of Paemanu, a collective of Ngai Tahu artists.
