Ko Michael Parekōwhai, i te tau 2011

He mahinga toi tēnei nā Michael Parekōwhai e pā ana ki te hononga i waenganui i te iwi Māori me te iwi Pākehā. E kīia ana tēnei mahi toi ko ‘He kōrero pūrākau mō te awanui o te motu: story of a New Zealand river’. Ka hoki te ingoa o tēnei toi ki te puka a Jane Mander a The story of a New Zealand river, ā, i tauiratia hoki ētahi tūāhua i te kiriata a Jane Campion a The Piano. He piano Steinway ‘concert grand’ tēnei momo piano, ā, he mea whakairo tōna papa ki ngā whakairo Māori. I whakakitea tēnei toi ki te Taiopenga Venice Biennale i te tau 2010,  ā, nō muri mai ka hokona e Te Papa Tongarewa mō te $1.5 miriona. I uia e Justin Paton te pātai, he toi Ūropi tēnei kua whakarākaitia ki te whakairo Māori, he toi Māori rānei kua whakamoana i tēnei toi ariki o Ūropi?’
