An exploration of a six-year project by one of Aotearoa New Zealand's leading artists. The book establishes the artistic and cultural contexts of Reihana's exquisitely realised video work in Pursuit of Venus [infected] 2015. It traces the artist's sources and inspiration and describes the work's complex production. Presented in an innovative and sympathetic design that combines 18th-century typographic sensibilities with contemporary and historic Māori and Pacific imagery. The texts provide the most detailed anaylysis of Reihana's practice to date and include beautiful images that highlight key scenes within the video and stunning portraits of the main characters.
