About the Work
"This is a development study of the actions map from Matt Pine’s Impressions on Gate Pā (excavations) from 1979, which was realised by the studio of Parekowhai in 2021. Of the three actions mapped as stunningly simple yet effective modes of communicating the embodied experiences of life in the fortification, this bridge indicates ‘crawling’ at the famous Bay of Plenty Pā, Pukehinahina, or Gate Pā, which was designed by Pene Tuia in 1864. My respect and awe for Pine’s lifelong mahi around spatial poetics has been expanding as I’ve slowly learned about and engaged with his working drawings in the Sarjeant Te Whare o Rehua collection." - Areez Katki for the May 2023 instalment of the 'My Choice' exhibition series.
