Turumeke Harrington (b. 1992 Otāutahi Christhcurch, Ngāi Tahu) is based in Pōneke Wellington with her daughter and partner.

 

Harrington has a background in industrial design and fine arts. An interest in whakapapa, space, colour and material sees her creating large sculptural installations at the intersection of art and design.

 

The artist's clarity of form and function is supplemented by a poetic pragmaticism and a commitment to making that is at once playful and provacative. Her sympathetic approach to materials combines with a bold colour palette to create engaging works that speak to the artist’s own personal relationships, cultural anxieties, and everyday musings.
