Multi-disciplinary artist Lisa Reihana (Ngāpuhi - Ngāti Hine, Ngāi Tū - Te Auru) is the Artist In Focus for the upcoming Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts. She will be bringing a series of her most celebrated pieces alongside new works to the Wellington region for the festival.
Among the works on display is the critically acclaimed in Pursuit of Venus [infected], which has travelled to London, San Francisco, Estonia, Taipei and further, but never to Wellington - until now. The large-scale video installation has just opened at Te Papa for a special extended festival season, coinciding with the release of the festival programme.
Reihana joins the show to discuss her work and play a few favourites.
