The video covers my work over the past thirty years, showing the complexity and significance of my work in the Pacific environment.
It provides context and reference to my collateral exhibition, Personal Structures, at Palazzo Bembo, Venice Biennale 2019. Many ephemeral works were filmed in and under the sea, in Antarctica and Hawaii and during other symposia. The works reference marine life and microorganisms, drawing attention to the fragility and vulnerability of our environment. Temporary and site specific commissioned works are included along with vessel forms that have evolved as metaphors for life and survival. Editing by Baraka. Soundtrack includes evocative music played by three musicians from Aotearoa: Heart Strings Natarani, Cello and Sasha Guitar and Anu Grace, Flute.
