He Hītori Kē: Nā Lisa Reihana rāua ko William DunningNew Histories: Lisa Reihana and William Dunning
Kei te whakaaturanga o New Histories, e arohaehae ana ngā mahinga toi hou a Lisa Reihana rāua ko William Dunning i te hītori o Aotearoa me ngā tohe i waenga i te ahurea o ngā tauiwi tuatahi me tērā o te Māori.
E tūhura ana ngā whakaahua kiri me ngā tuhinga whakaari a Reihana i tētahi pōhewatanga mō ngā hononga i waenga i te Māori me te Pākehā, ā, e whakahou ana hoki i te āhua o ngā taupuni whakaahua me ngā tikanga whakaahua o te rautau 19.
Ka whai a Dunning i ngā whakaahua me ngā tānga tawhito hei āta waihanga i āna whakaahua paki. Kei te whakapuaki hoki ia i tōna mōhio ki ngā hē o te mahi tāmi.
E whakaputa ana ngā ringatoi e rua i ngā tirohanga hou, waihoki he hītori kē mō te tāminga o tēnei whenua.
In New Histories, contemporary works by Lisa Reihana and William Dunning scrutinise New Zealand history and the power dynamics between settler and Māori cultures.
Reihana’s portraits and short scripted dramas explore imagined relationships between Māori and Pākehā and recreate 19th-century photographic studios and styles.
Dunning uses historical photographs and drawings to inform his detailed fictional scenes, and to express his awareness of the injustices of colonisation.
Both artists provide new readings and alternate versions of our colonial history.
