Episode one: Statue bro (gov grey)

A vandalised colonial war veteran boasts of his successes as Governor-general following the Taranaki war and Waikato Tainui invasion. He is responsible for the forceful confiscation of over 3 million acres of Māori land, which was subsequently used to pay for the war. He professes his disregard for Te Tiriti o Waitangi and flaunts his capitalist ideologies and white privileges.” - Artist Statement
