Māori Moving Image: An Open Archive artists
Meet at the front desk
Artists Nathan Pohio and Rangituhia Hollis in conversation about their works in Māori Moving Image: An Open Archive and the exhibition project as a whole.
Pohio (Waitaha, Ngāti Māmoe, Ngāi Tahu – Ngāi Tūāhuriri) is on the curatorial team of the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū, and his work, that draws on poetics of photographic, filmic traditions and Te Ao Māori, was included in the most recent Documenta project in Athens. His billboard work Raise the anchor, unfurl the sails, set course to the centre of an ever setting sun! is currently installed in Little Hagley Park in Ōtautahi.
Hollis (Ngāti Porou) is an artist known for his searching work in digital, documentary and political space, such as his animated video Oho Ake: Development of the Ford Cortina at Te Tuhi in 2016, and his recent animations and stills for the opera Alofagia at the Nathan Homestead in Manurewa. He is an educator, teaching 3D animation among other matters, living in Tamaki Makaurau.
