REREHIKO

1 February - 29 March 2020 | Golden Homes Gallery

An immersive video installation by Kāi Tahu artist Rachael Rakena. Rachael Rakena's sensual video installation considers how the arrival of the internet effected change for Māori. Rerehiko suspends performers in a watery underworld, where haka, waiata and taiaha merge with streams of email, encouraging us to contemplate the world anew.
