The many decisions that go through the making…adding and subtracting…where to finish when to stop and will there be an ending, a completion.
Titles and names have been given, they relate to the process through making and contemplation. This piece ‘Ki a wai?’ to who? ..plays with the title of Mr Peters piece, ‘dedicated to’. I have left the space clear that occupied the circle, the red lines indicative of its presence…subtracting and adding. Still yet to be finished..
“No whea koe?” , where are you from? questions with no answers, titles that ask questions, these works I respond to have little or few answers, so I question them.
This piece gained two holes at the top, for suspension, a cord to be placed there at some stage, or not.
“He mea”, a thing..ambiguous or as a statement, it exists so it is something, a thing, he mea. Does everything need to be described or interpreted or dissected, can something just be and exist in a space.
These pieces have posed questions and challenges, It will be exciting to see them coexist with the Coda pieces!
