Title: Sex and the city but Maaori: Under southern skies
Year: 2019
Length: 05:11
Credits: Tēnā koutou to Calse Ross, George Watson, Alex Laurie, RNZ (You still don’t give a balanced or fair representation of Māori issues though, especially Ihumātao), Bindi Irwin, Nikki Webster, Kylie Minogue and Home and Away. Arohanui and kia kaha to the kaitiaki resisting colonial violence at Ihumātao, Djap Wurrung’s sacred birthing trees, Wet’suwet’en Nation and Mauna Kea. S/o’s to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, whose stolen land we now stand and show work on. Tino rangatiratanga! Ake! Ake Ake!


Kōwhai emerged from an exploration of the relationship – whakawhanaungatanga – between moving image, kapa haka and waiata. Kōwhai parallels the immersive experience of my ongoing commitment to learning Te Reo Māori, exemplifying the creation of Te Ao Māori – from nothing to something – passed down through generations via ngā momo kōrero or oral storytelling.
Thematic tags: Performance, narrative, body, abstraction, new media, technology, sound, spirituality, indigenous methodologies.

Title: Looking For Love
Year: 2017

Tessa Russell

Title: You ripped out my mother tongue
Year: 2018
Length: 04:38
Credits: Tessa Russell
The work is of my mother’s journey without Te Reo Māori and it’s purpose is to raise awareness of the intergenerational trauma language loss can cause. It’s probably the most important piece of mahi I have ever put together in my life, because it’s not just her story. It’s my nanny’s, it’s mine, it’s my daughter’s, it’s New Zealand’s. This is OUR country’s history, this is OUR country’s language, so this is all of OUR responsibility to save it.
Thematic tags: Decoloniality, family, history, indigenous methodologies.

Tessa Russell’s practice is predominantly in photography and video. She utilizes her art to explore issues that affect her whānau, hapu, iwi, and community. Proud of both her Māori and Scottish ancestral lines, she understands the importance of adding her voice to conversations as an indigenous wahine and māmā.
