How is Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland City described outside of official city maps? What other kinds of wayfinding exist beyond our known pathways? What discrete spaces exist in plain sight?
Wild Wild Life is a collection of seven new artist videos developed in response to the city of Auckland.
Featuring works by Tia Barrett, Leala Faleseuga, Gavin Hipkins, Jae Hoon Lee, Obadiah Russon, Layne Waerea and Gabriel White, the programme includes a queer road movie, sci-fi wanderings, the historical wairua of Kiekie, migration from Samoa to Mangere, legal definitions of public space, and meditations on our virtual interconnectedness.
Commissioned by Auckland Council and curated by Mark Williams for CIRCUIT Artist Moving Image, Wild Wild Life will be installed at a series of site-specific locations across the inner city in March 2024, and designed to be walked in one day using a map created for the project.
