Janet Hafoka — Ephemeral: A Reflection on the Impermanent and Short Lived
Auckand-based visual artist Janet Hafoka explores memory and its fallibility, drawing on objects from the past as her subjects. Her latest exhibition, Ephemeral, explores the centuries-long fascination with the ‘golden hour’, the brief period shortly after sunrise or before sunset when the sun casts a soft, golden light. Artists have long been inspired by this transient time, often depicting this light when it otherwise would not have been. Hafoka explores the idea of transience and questions the nature of our experiences; whether they are truly as we remember, or seen through a lens of our choosing.
