Layne Waerea


Layne Waerea (Ngāti Wāhiao, Ngāti Kahungunu) is an Auckland based artist whose practice involves carrying out performance art interventions that seek to question and challenge social and legal ambiguities in the public sphere. As a former lawyer and lecturer in law, Waerea uses this experience to inform her performance interventions with a particular focus on how te Tiriti o Waitangi could continue to play a critical role in the developing cultural fabric of Aotearoa.

Projects include creating a special traffic lane for Maori, different ways to harvest rainwater and a free instructional video on how to catch air. Waerea is also the current president of the chasing fog club (Est. 2014).
