Ko te tumanako kia mīharo koutou ki ngā mahi toi o ngā tohunga nā rātou ngā peita, ngā whakairo, me ngā taonga uku i roto i tenei whakakitenga me te aroha anō hoki ki a rātou katoa i haere ki rāwāhi ki te pakanga tuatahi. Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.
“Mō Te Emepaea” (For The Empire) is a play on Lord Kitchener’s finger pointing to members of the Commonwealth that “Your Country Needs You”.
This is a personal exhibition based in part on the diaries of Tawhai Riri Tamepo which contains the activities of his platoon and his travels in Europe while on convalescent leave.
Tamepo paints a sobering portrayal of the post war struggles that many endured without governmental assistance which was only available to non-Māori returned servicemen.
Contributing to this memorial are artists: June Grant, Jean Stewart, the late Dr Cliff Whiting, Sandy Adsett, Derek Lardelli, Gabrielle Belz, Steve Gibbs, Baye Riddell, Grant Hall, Ruth Cole, Linda Pirimona, Hoana Forrester and Ereatara Tamepo.
