Faith Wilson

Faith Wilson is an artist and writer who currently lives in Te Whanganui-a-Tara but hails from Tokoroa and Kirikiriroa. Her practice centres on the experience of the self, as an afakasi Samoan/Palagi female who grew up in Aotearoa. She completed an MA in Creative Writing at the International Institute of Modern Letters in 2014, and she has poems published in Sport, Turbine, Ika and Mayhem. She also participates in performance works with her mother that explore notions of intergenerational identity. As the 2016 Blumhardt Curatorial Intern, she curated Dark Objects at The Dowse.
