Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.
關於傳統與未來、永續與時尚生活的看見

My concern is for the future and how we as Māori bring the old into the new. Our oldest tradition is the tradition of innovation.

Exploring the possibilities of digital technologies, fuelled by pop culture and how they may be used to transmit traditional Māori knowledge and values (mātauranga Māori) to create artworks that shift between digital, physical, non-physical, sense of place, identity, virtual and augmented realities.

‘I think as Māori we need to keep exploring just as our ancestors did.’

The technologies that are available to us now enable us to continue the korero (discussions) about our history.

我關注的是未來以及我們作為毛利人如何將舊的傳統融入新的時代。我們最古老的傳統是創新的傳統。

探索數位技術的可能性,受流行文化的啟發,並探討如何利用這些技術來傳遞傳統毛利知識和價值觀(mātauranga Māori),創造在數位、物理、非物理、場所感、身份、虛擬和擴增實境之間轉換的藝術作品。

“我認為作為毛利人,我們需要像我們的祖先那樣不斷探索。”

現在可用的技術使我們能夠繼續討論我們的歷史。

The Concept and Description of the Work
關於參展作品的創作動機與設計理念

Hei tiki pendant in red, with the aramoana pattern, meaning ‘pathway to the sea’, represents the flow of our toto (ancestry or bloodlines) around the body. Taepa embodies the tradition of innovation within te ao Māori in the hei tiki, with surface patterns inspired by aramoana and pop culture of the 1970s and 80s to create his own iteration of the classic hei tiki pendant. Hei means suspended from the neck, tiki broadly means carved human figures. Hei tiki are regarded as revered heirlooms (taonga) passed down from one generation to another. Connecting the wearer to their ancestors. Clothing in image is a red merino and silk nuno skirt and vintage woven obi used here as a bodice top over a black merino silk knit top made by Deb Donnelly.

紅色的 hei tiki 吊墜上有 aramoana 圖案,意為「通往大海的道路」,象徵著我們的 toto(血統或血緣)在身體內的流動。
Taepa 在 hei tiki 中體現了 te ao Māori 傳統的創新,表面圖案靈感來自 aramoana 和 1970 和 80 年代的流行文化,創造了他自己對經典 hei tiki 吊墜的詮釋。
Hei 意為懸掛於脖子上,tiki 廣泛意為雕刻的人的形象。Hei tiki 被視為傳家寶(taonga),一代代傳下來。將佩戴者與其祖先連接起來。
圖片中的服裝是一條紅色的美利奴羊毛和絲綢 nuno 裙子,和一條在這裡用作緊身上衣的復古編織 obi,穿在由 Deb Donnelly 製作的黑色美利奴羊毛絲綢針織上衣上。
