This large-scale digital work by renowned New Zealand artist Lisa Reihana immerses viewers in a visual spectacle, telling the traditional Māori story of the origins of our world.

Ihi fills two floor-to-ceiling spaces in the Aotea Centre foyer, enthralling viewers with the story of Ranginui and Papatūānuku playing out on 65 square metre digital screens. This makes it one of the largest and most significant works of contemporary Māori art in Aotearoa New Zealand.  

Lisa’s previous works, which include Digital Marae 2001 and the iconic in Pursuit of Venus [infected], which is internationally renowned and has had a significant impact on the arts and cultural reputation of Tāmaki Makaurau and New Zealand. The new piece is set to become one of the country’s most iconic works of art by a Māori artist.
