Chantel Matthews (Perawiti) is a visual artist.  Her  work uses 'experience' to explore the political, cultural and social through sculpture, video and performance.  Her practice investigates the relationships between self and society to examine one's position and place, heightening the everyday to more critical thinking.  Her practice is an ongoing social exchange where artist and viewer both participate in the work through relatable aesthetic and communicative processes.

 

Chantel is of Maori (Tainui) and Pakeha descent and lives in Auckland NZ.
