Episode 61: Common Ground with Mairi Gunn

How do we fill in the blanks of our own histories? This week on the podcast we speak with Mairi Gunn about moving from a career in the film industry to working in contemporary art. Speaking to host Mark Amery at the Pah Homestead we hear the backstory of her installation Common Ground, which looks at New Zealand Māori and Scottish Highlanders and their relationships to the land of their ancestors. In this wide-ranging conversation Mairi discusses working as a woman in the film industry, relational art, Merata Mita, public funding and having difficult conversations.
