In their Canadian exhibition premiere, partners and creative collaborators Rona Ngahuia Osborne and Dan Mace present three video works connected by wairua, a Maori word for "spirit" or "soul." Wairua also refers to universal energy, which is a thread evident in the videos presented, each of which utilize abstract personification and sound to explore the Earth (the four triptych piece Elemental), the starts (the seven monitor work Wheturangi), and human ritual (Te Taki, which welcomes the visitors into the gallery with a challenge and an invitation to communicate).
