Series: The Allegory

English and Maori texts interface on two sides of an oblique blackened glass. On the verso, the English text: 'Light lies at the end of a long dark hall' seeps through an expanded definition of 'Kaitiaki' from the Ngata Dictionary: 'I utua e raua he kaitiaki hai tiaki i a raua nga tamariki', translated in English: 'They hired a babysitter to take care of their children.'
