What does a legacy taste, smell, sound, feel, or look like?
LEGACIES is a programme of five new artist cinema commissions from New Zealand and Thailand featuring work by Edith Amituanai, Martin Sagadin, Pati Tyrell, Sriwhana Spong and Ukrit Sa-nguanhai.
Commissioned by CIRCUIT Artist Moving Image and curated by Dr May Adadol Ingawanij the project began in late 2021 when Ingawanij sent the artists a series of propositions about the potential of the term ‘legacies’;
“Legacies are that which we carry, sometimes with pride and sometimes with shame, as the basis of social bonding, whether as things a people embodies with pride or as an enduring pain, a burden, some kind of ghost.”
The resulting collection includes a portrait of a young Pasifika matriarch; a reflection on the cinematic history of Thailand; an artist sculpting clay in their studio; an animation based on a Balinese painting made by the artists grandfather, and a vivid interpretation of Samoan funeral chants and speeches.
The screening will be followed by a conversation between May Ingawanij, Sriwhana Spong and CIRCUIT Director Mark Williams.
