NOVA PAUL, THIS IS NOT DYING (FILM STILL), 2010, 16MM FILM TRANSFERRED TO HD VIDEO, 20 MINUTES
There are two Māori proverbs that unravel the capitalist time of labor and colonial constructs: for ka mura, ka muri we walk into the future backwards with our eyes firmly on the past and i ngā rā o mua: the days before us, that places the past in front and the future behind. This time here – te wa, is encompassing and embodied and resists factors of production, holding onto complexity. A floating world drawn from stories that link rocks, to songs, to children, to trees, to spiders, to wood pigeons, to the sky: these stories are the beginning of self determinacy.
