Photography by Cass MA Photography Alumna Heloise Bergman will be exhibited on huge posters at Angel tube station this month.
A selection of portraits from Heloise's Tā Moko - Modern Māori Warriors series will appear on platform one of the station from the 13th to the 27th of January as part of an international exhibition called Art Of Angel.
Heloise competed against hundreds of other artists to for the opportunity to have her work exhibited in the underground for Art Of Angel which is curated by Art Below to coincide with the London Art Fair.
Accompanying the underground exhibition will be the "Art of Angel" group show at the Candid Arts Trust, a historic Victorian warehouse with over 6,500 sq ft of exhibition space, located directly behind Angel station. Entry is free to the public. Open 11am - 6pm from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th January.
The Ta Moko series was first exhibited at The Cass MA Show 2013, and the local Ngati Ranana Maori action group performed a blessing at the Private View the show to celebrate the occasion.
The Ta Moko project focuses on the revival of the traditional sacred facial tattooing of the Maori people of New Zealand. The artform, carried out with a type of chisel had completely died out in Heloise's home country, at the beginning of last century, but has now been revived along with Maori language, as part of an awakening & reclaiming unique cultural identity.
Heloise is returning to New Zealand in February to continue the project. See more of her work on her website.
