Lisa Reihana | whitianga <<>> the crossing

Milford Galleries, Dunedin

whitianga <<>> the crossing explores Māori mythologies surrounding death and mourning and at the same time invites consideration of the universal stories that are created to describe the journey from the land of the living to that of the dead. Using lightbox-mounted stills taken from Lisa Reihana’s video work, Tai Whetuki – House of Death Redux(1), the goddess of death and the night, Hine-nui-te-pō, guides a dead warrior through an underworld where land and human are intimately entwined.
