Mai Time - Series 12, Episode 18

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2007

Mai Time was an influential magazine show for Māori youth. This arts-focused episode begins with an examination of tā moko (tattoo), including an interview with student (and future musician) Rob Ruha, who talks about his full face moko. The Mai Time crew then visit Ōtara Music Arts Centre and a Matariki exhibition at Whaingaroa (Raglan), before artist and guest reporter Lisa Reihana finds "more mean art by the sea": Brett Graham and Rachel Rakena’s Aniwaniwa exhibition, at the Venice Biennale in Italy. Aptly, the artwork explores the 1947 flooding of the northern village of Horahora for a hydroelectric scheme.

There's been a lot of luck and we've had a lot of friends and family that've supported us, and a lot of that was unplanned. It's a really nice way to do a project.
– Artist Rachel Reihana on bringing an exhibition to the Venice Biennale
