Form Next to Form Next to Form
Gwynneth Porter (Ed.)
This trip into Maori culture and landscape is a collaboration between New Zealand artist Noval Paul and the celebrated graphic design collective Åbäke. Paul’s 16mm film, This is not Dying, was shot using a three-color separation process, later composed to form a single image with a creeping aura of turquoise, pink, lilac and apricot. Mesmerizing multi-colored stills from the film are reproduced along with a poetic essay from Paul and editor Gwynneth Porter, “The Virtue of Trees,” that, like a tree, grew from conversations spanning ideas of sovereignty, resistance, film analysis, genealogy and care of self and the world around us. Evocatively accompanied by a 7” LP with a recording of ‘Whakarongo Mai,’ played by Ben Tawhiti on slide and steel guitar (released by 1:12 Records, Auckland).
