Over the course of the past year, as part of The Contemporary Museum’s artist-in-residence program, New York-based artist Darren Waterston made several trips to Hawai‘i, where he hiked on lava flows at Volcanoes National Park and researched past artists’ depictions of and writings on Pele and volcanoes. The result is Forest Eater, his response to the landscape of Hawai‘i and his interest in Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning and volcanoes. The two-part exhibition is staged at The Contemporary Museum, Makiki Heights, and at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
