Mumu Moore is a Wellington artist and film maker. He uses storytelling and cultural practice to create dynamic and emotional films, and artworks that help him to connect to his whakapapa, his way of living, and his higher connection to the atua (gods) that surround us all. Mumu works within the digital world, combining his love of film, photography and video editing to make poetic films. While also working with rakau (wood) to create Taonga Pūoro (maori musical instruments) mainly pūrerehua (bull roarers).

        • <figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " > Taxidermy and photography both exist as a state of preservation of the subject, denying organic decay in a disjointed modernity, a concept that Ben Klocek and Antoinette Ratcliffe emulate in their show Cellar Door. Crepuscular and discarded, the specimens in their photographs take on new flesh in composition, and in their sentience. Antoinette’s practice explores the anthropomorphic through her use of a variety of media, including her own taxidermy, where the animals find themselves in relationships created out of circumstance. This photographic series examines the chronotope allegory between taxidermy and the captured image. Exploring the connection between the physical and the subconscious, Ben constructs situational realities between taxidermy, found spaces and objects. In his use of vibrant and sometimes conflicting colour palettes, Ben creates limbic resonance between the subject, the artist and the viewer. @AntoinetteRatcliffe thesickbay.com @klocek.ben @Ben Klocek Illustration
