Te Tuhi is proud to present With the sun aglow, I have my pensive moods, a major new work by Wellington-based artist Shannon Te Ao (Ngāti Tūwharetoa) and a joint commission between Te Tuhi and the 2017 Edinburgh Art Festival. This two-channel video installation features footage filmed in three separate locations in Aotearoa New Zealand, documenting a dance, a highway and a farm. These visuals also contain a myriad of references that create a convergence between Te Ao’s personal socio-geography, his tīpuna and the imaginings of other artists, directors and musicians from distinct times and places.
