In this 35 minute podcast, Jordana Bragg and Hana Pera Aoake speak with Elijah Winter for the Lokal Stories project.
Elijah Winter is a Wellington artist whose performative work extends across the media of photography, video and performance. Her work is concerned with representation of bodies, histories, gender and sexuality, through the lens of queerness.
Together they discuss invisible histories, performance art, imperialism, whakapapa, colonialism, trauma, denial, slavery, cultural appropriation, urbanisation, water, memorials, feminism, body politics, queerness, togetherness, sexual violence, LGBTQ, safe spaces, emotionality and communication.
Thanks to Elijah for sharing these insights and practice with us. As always thank you to Wellington City Council, Public Art Fund and Creative New Zealand, Creative Communities Scheme for supporting Lokal Stories. This podcast was recorded at Salient Publication’s radio station.
