Kei te pai press spoke to John Miller (Ngāpuhi) in his exhibition space at ObjectSpace in Auckland. Pouwātū was a celebration of transformative events in New Zealand history with, in ObjectSpace's words, "an overarching theme of sovereignty at its core". The show was first shown at the Sydney Bienniale NIRIN 2020 and then expanded for its first viewing on home soil.
It was a pleasure to talk with Miller in this setting, designed by Elisapeta Heta, and hear from him about New Zealand history and his life history.
