In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: “to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking”.
In August 2016 Hana Pera Aoake and Jordana Bragg undertook a week long takeover of the Lokal Stories Instagram and Twitter accounts. HPA wrote almost a thousand tweets. JB erased all of these by deleting approximately 150-200 a day.
Parrhesia is a selection of these tweets, which act as a series of poems or anxious truths around intimacy, grief, capitalism and how we mediate our ‘selves’, emotions and relationships through technology. Parrhesia is a animated text work designed and made by irl angel, Sean Burn fromJPEG2000.
This window video installation was organised by Kollektiv Gallery as part of the Lokal Stories residency and Cyber Nectar project, taking place 28 September – 16 October, made possible by Creative New Zealand,Wellington City Council Public Art Grant and Emporium Vintage.
