Ana Iti is interested in Ralph Hotere’s relationship with text and printing. Drawing together footage of the now disused studio Limeworks (1987-1994) in Ōtautahi and letterpress printing processes, Iti considers the histories of publishing and disseminating written text as a way to think through her own relationship to language.
