askewone @elliotfrancisstewart has his 'Kneecaps' work up on @1xrun right now including this one, 'Netball Girls' "Netball girls seem nice from a distance but in my life they are vicious. They will hurt more than just your feelings and they cheat at netball." 8h

askewone #michaelparakowhai the promised land show at GOMA blew my mind today - David Lynch show was cool but the Michael Parakowhai show stuck with me more. 1w
  •   midnight_maurauder Parakowhai was on point 1w
  •   askewone @midnight_maurauder big time! 1w
  •   urbanviti I found the smaller rooms in the middle dwarfed his work, in particular 'Horn of Africa' (seal balancong piano on tip of nose). Having said that, at the opening Parakowhai did talk about creating spaces and personal space in this exhibition. 1w
  •   urbanviti #blah excuse the spelling mistakes...mobile keypad is not my friend 1w
  •   askewone @urbanviti yeah I hear you - I was still real impressed though. I haven't been home much lately so it was really resonating with me to see it today. 1w

askewone 'Te a'ai o Hina'
For @onoutahiti this year @sofles chose to interpret the legend of Hina & the origin of the coconut in Tahiti. We took some influence from one of Tahiti's beloved singers & painters Bobby Halcomb, who was actually of Black, Portuguese & Hawai'ian descent but was part of a huge renaissance of Tahitian language, imagery & mythology in popular culture. From him we took the frame within a frame & the exaggerated feminine form which were two of his hallmarks. We painted this mural with rollers only and no spray paint. The legend goes as follows, a beautiful princess Hina is betrothed to Te Tuna the prince of eels who she is physically repulsed by. She appeals to Hiro the fishing god to give her refuge. Hiro was taken by her beauty & story and with one of her hairs, fished Te Tuna from the sea & cut off his head, wrapping it in leaves. As he died his last words were 'One day all those who hate me including you Hina & all your descendants will be forced to kiss me on my mouth'. Hiro entrusted Hina with the head & made her promise never to allow it to get wet. One hot day she couldn't resist the urge to swim in a cool stream and lay the head down beside the water, it got wet and grew into a coconut tree. Hina was condemned by the gods to remain close to the tree which was tapu (sacred). No one took touched the tree until one day there was a drought which affected everything but the Coconut tree. The people climbed the tree to get the fruit which was full of clear nutritious water. The fruit features three markings, the eyes & mouth of the Eel. When the people pierced the mouth hole & drank from it, they fulfilled Te Tuna's prophecy, kissing him on the mouth. #postgraffitipacific
