I Made my own Teeth
Te Ao, Shannon Date
2013 See full details
In 2013, Te Ao’s exhibition I Made my own Teeth, combined video and text-based art works to extend his interest in combining the poetic and political, responding to a variety of information ranging from Māori songs to political events. In this work comprising seven consecutive texts, Te Ao draws on Tweets made by Māori rights activist, Tame Iti, written while recently imprisoned. Pictorial vignettes of highly personal notations of daily observations, experience and thought, they operate in an indeterminate space that is open to the vagaries and possibilities of language.
