Aniva is a collection of sand on paper works presented as a large scale installation by artist Vaimaila Urale. Conceptually, the exhibition explores the artist's interest in collectivism and plays with notions around collective ownership, inclusive spaces and accessibility to art. The artwork operates as a constellation comprised of multiple visual elements and Samoan symbols, fundamental to Urale’s practice. Utilising a grid format as the framework, Aniva can also be appreciated as smaller individual artworks. There are 50 sand on paper works in total which combine to create the larger entity that is Aniva. Urale asserts a communal frame of reference to the work, continuing her deeply exploratory art practice.
