Dionne Christian, New Zealand Herald , February 1, 2020

Lisa Reihana talks to Dionne Christian about unveiling her latest video artwork ahead of one the most unusual projects of her life. 

 

Ardern this week unveiled Reihana's Ihi, a giant 12-minute digital artwork, which tells the story of Ranginui and Papatūānuku and plays out on two floor-to- ceiling 65sqm screens at the Aotea Centre. Its size makes Ihi one of the largest and most significant works of any contemporary public art in Aotearoa New Zealand.

 

Lisa also joined forces with world-renowned French footwear designer Christian Louboutin for an eagerly-awaited show at the Palais de la Porte Doree, one of Paris' most famous exhibition halls, which opens on February 25.
