Whakaahuatia ai a Janet Lilo hei kaikauwhau kaupapa pāpori, ā, kitea ai ngā āhuatanga ahurea o te marea kei roto i āna toi – whakaemi ai ia i ngā whakaahua me ngā ataata atu i ngā tūnga tuihono, i ngā pakiwaituhi taioreore, i ngā ataata puoro, i ngā atataki, i ngā pakipūmeka. Whakaaturia ai tēnei komititanga o ngā kaupapa me ngā aratau toi i roto i Right of Way, 2013 – ko tēnei ataata hongere-toru he wāhanga nō tōna hanganga rongorau i whakaaturia tuatahitia i Artspace i te 5th Auckland Triennial, If you were to live here . . . (2013). Kei te urupare tēnei toi ataata ki ngā tikanga me ngā mahi noa o Avondale, kei Tāmaki ki te Hauāuru, kei reira te kāinga o Lilo. Ko tā tēnā, tā tēnā o ngā pikitia 18, he whakaū i te motuhaketanga o te wāhi e hono ai ki wāhi kē, ka mutu ka kitea atu te karapiti hoki – hei tauira ko te taha o te whare e kaokaotia ana e ngā rākau tāroaroa, me ngā kupu a te waiata paki nō te tau 1996 a ‘Life Goes On’ nā Tupac.
Janet Lilo is often described as a social commentator and her practice is grounded in popular culture, which she explores with appropriated amateur photography and video from online platforms, stop animation, music videos, vlogs (video blogs) and experimental documentary. This confluence of interests and modes of art making appear in Right of Way, 2013, a three-channel video work that was part of her multi-media installation presented at Artspace for the 5th Auckland Triennial, If you were to live here . . . (2013). The video work responds to the rituals and practices of the neighbourhood in Avondale, West Auckland, where Lilo’s home is located. Each of the 18 scenes evoke a sense of locality in connection with other places and include juxtapositions, as in the scene in which the edge of a house flanked by tall trees is presented with lyrics from Tupac’s 1996 rap ballad, ‘Life Goes On’.
