Owae SCANZ

Moments after the first SCANZ started – at Owae marae in 2006

The photo above is of the gathered participants at the first SCANZ – just after the powhiri at Owae Marae in 2006. Nina Czegledy, Trudy Lane and Ian Clothier will present on SCANZ 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2013 at Balance-Unbalance.

As part of our Balance-Unbalance presentation on Solar Circuit Aotearoa New Zealand, where we will discuss issues around engaging with science and indigenous peoples, we are wanting to subvert the usual arrangements for presentation.

We would like the audience to download our presentation images to their mobile device. We will then not require the use of a projector with it’s directional emphasis, will be able to sit in a circle, and we will also be able to leave the room and go for a short walk all as part of our presentation.

This emphasis on the physicality of experience, of interrogating the frameworks for activity, and taking alternate approaches all arise from the experience of producing SCANZ in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2013.

Water is essential for life, sacred to many indigenous peoples worldwide and endemic to natural processes. This project connects Maori cosmology, notions of integrated systems, Western art and science in order to reinvigorate our understanding of flow and water. The project reiterates the urgent need to engage with sustainable practices given climate change. It also underlines the importance of listening to the indigenous voice on the environment.

The Wai (Maori for water or flow) project uses technology to connect distant spaces and cultures around the theme of water. Water holds significance for Maori of New Zealand Aotearoa, Navajo/Dine in New Mexico and neighboring regions, and is essential to survival. Isleta Pueblo, Navajo/Dine and Maori ceremonies will be performed as part of the dawn opening for the exhibition.

The project is led by Te Huirangi Waikerepuru and curated by Ian Clothier. It will open September 19th at 516 Arts in Albuquerque. A collective of people spanning four countries and many cultures – Aotearoa New Zealand, USA, Australia, India and representatives of indigenous peoples -are presenting an interconnected project. The collective is known as Te Hunga Wai Tapu (the people for whom water is sacred).

Te Kore Rongo Hungaora Uncontainable Second Nature

all

Te Kore Rongo Hungaora Uncontainable Second Nature was a project of ISEA 2011 Istanbul. A travelling version has since been formed, for exhibition in Rio de Janeiro.

The exhibition crosses cultural and discipline boundaries. The location of five themes from within European and Maori world views, provides a framework with which to construct a cultural bridge between Maori and European of New Zealand. Culture is usually presented separated and distinct; given the intercultural bridge, works from art and science are recontextualised as cultural texts symbolic of belief systems. Discipline is not fixed, but fluid in a transformational environment. In the exhibition, digital and post-digital exist in a state of hybridity.

Curated by Ian Clothier with an advisory panel of Nina Czegledy, Trudy Lane and Tengaruru Wineera, for ISEA 2011 Istanbul. Supported by:

inter / place

inter / place

 

 

The works in the exhibition inter/place present an attempt to come to grips in some way with the notion of multiplicity and a sense of distributed identity. Rather than gather all the artworks up in one area and present them as a selection of works on one theme, the artists taking part in this exhibition have been free to create their own work and explore different exhibition locations for that work. Subsequently none of these works have been placed in the conventional sites for exhibitions in Puke Ariki museum. There is no claim to novelty in this approach but rather the determination that a view based on distributed and multiple identity has been hybridised to the Puke Ariki location.

 

Venue

Puke Ariki – three works in the museum section and one in the library.
Date: December 2 2010 – February 3 2011.
