Inspiring Art/Food Evening at Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery: Join us for an exclusive evening with local artist and forager Mamakan

May 6, 2021

Join us for an exclusive evening with local artist and forager Mamakan. Originally from Denmark, Mamakan has exhibited her multi-sensory art/food installations both nationally and internationally.


Now based in Parau in West Auckland, Mamakan will delight and intrigue us with a foraging tour around Te Uru, where we will use our senses to see, smell, touch and taste a few of the many native plants on our doorstep.

This walk will be followed by an artist talk in the Learning Centre hosted by our curator, Chloe, accompanied by a sensorial feasting table where we will learn how Mamakan transforms native seasonal flowers, fruits, leaves and seeds into delicious edible items. 

We will try Mamakan’s creations and make a Kauri Cocktail guided by her knowledge and expertise. A non-alcoholic option will be available.
Please bring some comfortable shoes for a short walk, some warm clothes and an umbrella or coat.


Thursday 6 May, 5.30-8pm | $40
Spaces limited, please pay on booking your place.
