Fale Ula

Niki Hastings-McFall’s artworks enliven Auckland sites

“The singing of birds … the most melodious wild music ever heard” (Joseph Banks, 1770) will welcome visitors to Niki Hastings-McFall’s Fale Ula installation in Aotea Square during the 2015 Auckland Arts Festival (4-22 March).

An interactive sound element, developed in conjunction with Hubbub Studios, responds directly to people’s presence within an oval of 20 trees in Aotea Square.

Each tree bears the artist’s “polynisation” trademark of brightly coloured synthetic lei. The project, based on the Samoan fale will enhance the square’s function as a place for people to relax, gather and share.

Fale Ula is part of five linked sites in Auckland in 2015 that will feature the artist’s work.
