Event description
Mauria is the second walking project presented by Jeremy Leatinu’u that invites participants to traverse the urbanscape of Ōwairaka.

About this Event

The journey will begin at the Waterview Reserve before travelling towards and arriving at the base of the mountain of Ōwairaka / Te Ahi Kaa o Rakataura. The name of the walk itself, Mauria, translates as ‘to take’ or ‘to carry’. People participating in the walk are asked to bring a small packet of plant seeds or seedlings of any kind which will be carried during the journey.

Mauria walks the return journey to Kawea in 2019. A walk that invited participants to bring and carry an object of significance from the base of Ōwairaka to Waterview reserve.

The walk is accessible to people with wheelchairs and pushchairs. Transport back to Waterview Reserve will be provided. If you need wheelchair accessible transport please email kiaora@walkingabout.nz so we can book the right transport.

Jeremy Leatinu’u creates works that consider the relationships between site, history, language and people. He has invited people to carry earth from Auckland City to Waiheke, used WW2 exercise regimes to respond to former troop training sites and stood in welcome at the arrival gate of the Auckland International Airport. His work has been included in the 2019 Honolulu Biennale, the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival and the 2017 Headlands Sculpture on Gulf.

All About walking walks are responsive to the Covid19 alert levels. Mauria can be undertaken with appropriate distancing at Alert Level 2 and we are currently developing Alert Level 3 and 4 strategies.

About walking is a series of performative and participatory walks that travel across Auckland with Te Hau ā Uru – the West Wind. The walks are artworks – guided experiences leading audiences and participants across Auckland. Its walks-as-artworks follow stories, pathways of the imagination and the senses, awa (rivers) and maunga (volcanic hills), uncovering the hidden trajectories of our urban and bush terrain.

About walking has received generous support from Auckland Council and the Albert-Eden Local Board.
