My video I Love JaNY, screes within the Black Light part 2: Black Women exhibition film programme curated by Temi Odumosu.
What does it mean to know and experience the world in (under) a “black light”? This programme engages themes of presence, absence, memory, and illumination through African and African diasporic filmmaking. The moving images presented here explore blackness conceptually in the way Édouard Glissant describes as ‘a knowledge becoming’; travelling along deep historical pathways, moving through and between embodied realities, and even reimagined in dreams. These images are sensitive, bold, and heartfelt. Truth and fiction are woven into stories, that offer points of connection.

Welcome to our open studio to see what we have been working on for the past several weeks. I have been working collaboratively on an artwork called Waiting for Te Whiti. This is my first collaboration with Te Āti Awa wood carver, Ihaia Puketapu. Te Whiti o Rongomai III (Te Āti Awa, 1830s-1907) was a spiritual leader of Parihaka in Aotearoa New Zealand and forerunner of the passive-resistance movement.
