This installation began as a piece of writing by Hana Pera Aoake. In Aoake’s text, written for their then-7-week-old baby, the swamp that lies beneath present-day Christchurch city is addressed as a site which remembers, hears, knows, mourns, and rages. Drawing on these ideas, Wesley, Taarn and Hana have collaboratively developed work in relation to the water that is held in the earth, and with a particular focus on the Ōtākaro awa which runs through this city.

With thanks to Go Media, Ōtautahi, for their support of the digital billboards in this project.
