SB15 artists Kahurangiariki Smith and Neil Ieremia share their artistic approaches to subverting stereotypical representations of Indigenous peoples. Smith’s practice broadly addresses the history of colonisation, the reclamation of Indigenous knowledge and the present-day, lived consequences of historical events in New Zealand. Ieremia’s dance company, Black Grace, is an Auckland-based dance company that inflects the gestural idiom of contemporary dance with Indigenous Samoan and Māori movement patterns. Both artists employ diverse methods and artistic media to reclaim the discourse around Indigenous identity, heritage and lived experience.
