Pae Kouka speaks of a space outside the Pātūwatawata - palisades.
Through the eyes of our Tāura Mokemoke (kaumatua), their eyesight is tested by time and distance. Silhouettes gathering beyond the fence line are likened to that of the Kōuka tree.
Knowing that things are influencing our very existence. Yet not quite clear enough to solidify the stand.
Thrown into turmoil through fear and theories, clashing governing forces and free will.
Friend or foe unbeknown, a space of clashing perspectives.
Venue: Whirikoka Campus (December 2021).
