Exhibition - Parrhesia.

Text video installation, duration 5 minutes (continuous loop). Hana Pera Aoake and Jordana Bragg in collaboration with Sean Burn.

In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: "to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking". I love the nightlife. Admit it, You are a voyeur. Everyone looks hotter with their face lit by a screen. You were addictive, I love u but ur stupid. Just keep looking down.

In August Hana Pera Aoake and Jordana Bragg undertook a week-long takeover of the Lokal stories Instagram and Twitter accounts. HPA wrote almost a thousand tweets. JB erased all of these by deleting approximately 150-200 a day.

'Parrhesia' is a selection of these tweets, which act as a series of poems or anxious truths around intimacy, grief, capitalism and how we mediate our ‘selves’, emotions and relationships through technology. Parrhesia is an animated text work designed by girl angel, Sean Burn.

This window video installation was organised by Kollektiv Gallery as part of the Lokal Stories residency and Cyber Nectar project, taking place 28 September - 16 October, made possible by Creative New Zealand, Wellington City Council Public Art Grant and Emporium Vintage.
