Lost Content (2013)

2 min 20 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"In Lost Content the artist’s arm is shown in four split screens, each offering slightly different perspectives on the same event. Within each frame there are both subtle and jarring differences, affording a sense of chaos or drama to an otherwise quiet work. It is as if Te Hira wants each part of her ancestry to break free from their rules, codes and parameters, so that she can make sense of the overwhelming and difficult process we know as grief."
