Biography

Suzanne Tamaki is a New Zealand fibre-based artist of Te Arawa, Ngāti Maniapoto and Tūhoe descent. She operates under the label Native Sista and was one of the founding members of the Pacific Sisters. Informed by indigenous concerns of Aotearoa, New Zealand, Tamaki's jewellery, fashion and photography portrays a reclamation of colonised spaces. As Megan Tamati-Quenell writes of her work 'They are created conceptually, provocatively and with political intent'.

Collaboration

A founding member of Pacific Sisters, Suzanne continues to collaborate with artists. Her photographs that featured in the City Gallery Wellington exhibition Maiden Aotearoa saw her produce work with photographers Greg Semu and Norman Heke. Suzanne's work is a regular feature at the Toi Māori Art Market which she says is 'a unique opportunity for her to meet like-minded Māori' and states that 'many collaborations are formed between Māori'.
