Wog Features by Lisa Reihana

Artwork Detail

Lisa Reihana was an early student of the intermedia department at Elam School of Fine Arts. There she specialised in film-making. Her first short experimental films developed her interest in the ‘efficiency’ of animation to capture new audiences. In short rhythmic edits she tackles subjects of Māori

culture and politics in the style of a music video. Wog Features reflects the rising politicisation of indigenous art practice. The beatbox soundtrack was a collaboration with curator George Hubbard, and the feeling of community evident in the film is continued in Reihana’s later work with the Pacific Sisters.
