I have come and joined my love with yours (Aliyah Winter and Nathaniel Gordon-Stables)

247256715

A collaboration between Aliyah Winter and Nathaniel Gordon-Stables.

"The departure point for I have come and joined my love with yours is a transcription of a conversation between Governor Grey and Wiremu Tako Ngātata, or Wi Tako, (Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Ruanui) in 1896. The text is a translation of Wi Tako’s account of events, originally dictated in te reo Māori. This work considers the politics of translation and conflicts of power through an interpersonal relationship." - AW
