Ko ‘Black Phoenix’ nā Ralph Hōtere

Anei te mahi toi kaitā a Ralph Hōtere e kīia ana ko ‘Black Phoenix’ (i hangaia i te tau 1984) kei Te Papa Tongarewa i te tau 2011. I mahia mai te toi nei i ngā papa o te kaipuke hī ika i wera ki te taunga waka e tūtata ana ki tōna kāinga i Ōtākou. Kei runga i ētahi o ngā papa ngā kupu ‘Hinga atu he tētēkura, ara mai he tētēkura’. E rongonui ana ngā mahi a Hōtere mō ngā tohu nui me ngā kōrero tōrangapū.
