FOREWORD We can do this! And have been able to for a longtime. New Zealand has a long, proud history of backing women into positions of power and taking up their call for action on all manner of issues. When the New Zealand Governor General, Lord Glasgow signed a new electoral act on Sept 10, 1893, New Zealand became the first country in the world to grant women the right to an equal vote. This was largely due to a great New Zealand woman called Kate Sheppard (03/13/184713/09/1934) who was globally recognised and in turn revered as the leader of the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Little did current New Zealand’s 40th Prime Minister, Jacinda Adern know the pertinence of this to her rallying election campaign call some 150 years later; ‘We Can Do This!’ At just 37 years-old she is the country’s youngest Prime Minister since 1856. Black Magazine have a history of celebrating women. Many of our crew and teams are women, leading, not following. This issue BACK IN BLACK, welcomes a new female member to the whanau, Abbey Gould, featuring as our new Design Director. Taking a journey back with Creative Director Rachael Churchward, they explored our archives from the last ten years and Abbey explored many of the simple, visual, design and memorable moments that has made up our DNA for Black. Respecting our past Art Directors, Abbey modernised our vision. Back in Black Rachael, Grant and the Black whanau

The last few years have seen Kiri become a regular contributor to many causes in the aid of furthering the growth of those less fortunate, and raising the profile of the underdog. Amongst the situations she applies herself to, include sitting on the Advisory Board of Super Diverse Women (NZ), and the Board of the I Have A Dream Charitable Trust, which supports the education of up to 1500 children in Decile 1 schools in Northland. She is also a Hawea Vercoe Leadership Programme mentor, headed by The Moko Foundation’s Dr Lance O’Sullivan, who was the 2014 New Zealander of the Year, and was a recipient of an invitation to participate in the International Visitors Leadership Programme (IVLP) – an American initiative which in the past has included six previous Prime Ministers of our country, as well as many of the world’s foremost politicians, entrepreneurs and leaders. Kiri is at this moment participating in the latest edition, of which US Embassies worldwide were asked

48

to nominate one woman from each country, to represent them in the IVLP for Women in Entrepreneurship. The US Embassy headquarters in Washington DC selected forty-nine from this group, to be invited to four American states for a three week programme, funded “by the people for the people” - even though it entailed a huge amount of rearrangement and juggling to make it happen. It was an opportunity that just couldn’t be missed. While in the process of finalising this, another of her ambitious ideas was approved, and with the timelines so tight, she will fly directly from the US to China after this sojourn. In between this, there was a trip to New York to meet with US Vogue, HSN TV Network and prominent New York stylists (to discuss her fashion business), and a meeting with the Metropolitan Museum and Parsons School of Design, where she will discuss the exhibition of He Kaakano Ahau. Kiri then heads to Los Angeles to visit the team she worked with at Disney’s, film Moana. She will again meet with local stylists to introduce

her brand to a wider audience Westside. There is a quick stop in Park City Utah, where good friend and personal champion of her work, Nancy Gilbert, has created introductions to administrators of Sundance Institute’s newly created arts platform which will sit parallel to their acclaimed Film Festival, as well as meeting with the local Ute Indian Tribe. A week of whanau time has been arranged with husband Jason and their children, to visit Disneyland and tick off another of her long held dreams to give their children the chance to share in her work adventures. She then heads directly to Guangzhou where they will be hosted by the Mayor, and curate a fashion show as part of the Tripartied Agreement between ATEED (Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development), Los Angeles and Guangzhou. Kiri has created an initiative to take seven Maori designers to China, introducing them to the largest fabric markets in the world and they will be given support to seek agents


to import goods used in their production. To also facilitate the ability to generate trade, import bespoke and custom made fabrics home to New Zealand. Enabling them to be competitive within the marketplace against those with more established systems. Her reasoning behind this is to see a culture of change in the local industry, from purely selfinterest and isolationism, to a more inclusive feeling of support for each other, ultimately benefitting the sharing of knowledge and the creation of a different dynamic, within the culture of the Maori fashion industry. The best way to make this happen is to lead by example, with no ulterior motive other than to create avenues for Maori fashion to excel globally. Kiri’s vision for her own work is international, and she aims with this initiative to grow the visibility and knowledge of the entire communities design, by connecting Maori designers to China’s vibrant marketplace. With the support of

ATEED and the Poutama Trust, she begins this enterprise on her return home, meeting the lucky recipients of her time in China. Her connection at ATEED stated, “we don’t usually have anyone come here and say, this is what I know, and I’d like to share that for the benefit of others”. She pursues this, without the need to push her own agenda. She is more for the benefit of others than herself, illustrating quite obviously that the motivations for her are generous in spirit, and highlight the nature of the person we know her to be”.

dedicated to her grandmother, (the person directly responsible for her participation in the world of fashion) it seemed a foregone conclusion that her work would be included in the collections of other national institutions as a leading example of contemporary Maori fashion and art. Watch out for our Kiri Nathan. There is a lot more to come from this incredibly driven and humble New Zealander, whose work for the benefit of others, will create avenues of growth for the wider community at large.

This year Te Papa Tongarewa in their wisdom have added fifteen pieces of her work to the National Collection, including her trademark weaving, and one piece of pounamu, carved by husband and collaborator Jason Nathan. After the Auckland Museum initially purchased her Supreme Award winning Style Pasifika gown,

It’s a balmy Friday night perfect for the opening party of the Underbelly Arts festival at Sydney’s National Art School and we’re inside a veritable bunker of a building, The Cell Block theatre. Within imposing 10 metre high sandstone walls, you could be in a cathedral, belying the space’s former nature as the notorious women’s wing of the old Darlinghurst Gaol. The cells that held criminals have long been removed; cut away to create a vast space. Soon a dark yet shimmering presence emerges, opens their laptop, taps a key or two to cue a backing music and stalks up to the microphone. Gussy is onstage. There is no one else there to pull the focus and they command our full attention. Their voice is confident and melodic, dynamic yet gentle. In the morning, I get up I move some muscle. Getting up is such a struggle We fought all night And I cried cried cried cried On the telephone “All my songs are about the same things, I’m surprised anyone wants to still listen,” Gussy quips turning away from the audience briefly to tap at more buttons and begin the next track. “It’s basically a confessional style of song writing that is just me purely explaining an emotion I feel rather than describing things outside of me or being lyrical about beautiful experiences or heartbreak or love. It’s a bit narcissistic. I just sing about the way that I feel about

58

myself, which is not particularly positive at times. Which could get boring to listen to as the songs overlap in subject matter,” they laugh, “but I also feel that people respond to that candour.” We are now seated in my living room a few weeks later recording the interview and this is the response when I repeat that quote back. Gussy is at once songwriter, producer, singer and performer of their work – the quintessential solo artist. Coming up through an intersection of the queer performance and electronic music scenes, Gussy is fast gaining wider notice and this is certainly due to the DIY self-published approach via the reach of the world wide web they’ve taken to spread their sparse yet romantic and unashamedly pop sound. “I started writing songs, vocal melodies, when I was in high school. Making up songs without any accompaniment, writing lyrics in my head. I’ve never learnt to play an instrument or read or wrote music. Then in 2014 I started to use Garageband and began to figure out basic chord structures, so I could get the ideas down. I want to be a performer and I’ve always enjoyed performing, always wanted to have a creative output of some kind. That’s the way I’ve always thought about myself, so I have the confidence to do it. As an output, music is the most immediate and encompassing mediums of storytelling.” Blending their key musical touch

points of Kelela and Yazoo by way of Roisin Murphy and Kate Bush, it just all comes out sounding unpretentious, personal and right. “What I like about pop music is that you can reduce an idea to its most purest, most accessible deliverable form. They are my references in terms of the music… but it’s evolving so much. The music I’m writing now, I’ll think it’ll just keep changing, in fact I worry sometimes that it changing to much, to constantly ‘cause that’s how I feel like I’m working and that I should probably reel it in a little bit,” [more laughter] These changes have meant that this solo artist is now just beginning to bring other producers into the fold. The tracks “Mornings“ with Strictface and “In Order To Love” with Lonelyspeck have come out of a co-production workflow. “The newer music is now mostly influenced by the practise of me as a songwriter working with a producer. To have them bring their specific point of view that no one else could bring to the music. Being purely DIY in an insular sense can send you mad because trying to get what’s in your head to come out of the speakers is somewhat impossible if you’re not working effectively.” Acknowledging collaboration in the visual side of the work is also important, in that each track is released simultaneously on YouTube as well as online music stores and Soundcloud. The videos, like the songs, are simple yet striking, with singular images

that stick with you: Gussy sculling wine right from the bottle on a rainy rugby field at night in “Away from Home”, the “Mornings”, dance sequence in a bathrobe inspired dress, the wide shots from “In Order to Love” of a dancing figure on rolling green hills under a blue sky full of fluffy clouds. “Joe Brennan has shot the last two videos; and then also I’ve worked with Dylan my partner on the styling and imagery. But it’s mostly me, I end up pulling it all together and coming up with the approach to the images and the locations and the rough storytelling that is central to it.” This leads us to start discussing the power of fashion and outfits and as a key part of Gussy on stage and Gus in everyday life. “Clothing is very important to me and so I really like to play with it, playing with the levels to which this gendered expression is performed. To me it’s equally political and not political at all because I also go out at night wearing the same kinds of things and that’s not a costume, it’s what I like to wear, it’s my wardrobe. To me, if Shirley Bassey wore sequins onstage it holds the same meaning

60

as if I do. I want to look good, I want to look glamorous and I want to look sparkly… it’s simple in that respect. I’ve always driven home that this is not drag and it’s not costuming. But because I’m not a cis-woman and I am perceived as a guy, to wear a variety of different looks on my own terms, a political edge comes into it via my experience of gender.” Identifying as they do as non-binary is key to this experience and is a very conscious part of image making, hand in hand with the sound. “I like the idea that I look good in the music videos and on stage while at the same time I’m being variant or being non-binary, and anyone could objectively say that. I’m someone that was assigned certain things in the world and then rejected those things and I’m still looking good, as opposed to it not working.” Within the musical legacy Gussy harks back to, there is undoubtedly a trace back to 80’s androgyny along with a punk and DIY ethos. Do they relate to that idea and how does it move forward? “I shy away from the word androgynous because it has such an attachment to aesthetics: how

a person looks in their body and clothing and their relationship to that clothing. The reason I find the term non-binary so important is that androgyny is about both sides coming together or swapping, which is binary thinking. But to say non-binary is to say ‘I don’t acknowledge’ or ‘I’m actively against’ or ‘I’m dismantling’ that. It’s about questioning binary thinking. And it’s not just about gender; there are so many binaries in our culture that need to be examined and dismantled. We could live without a binary and we should have that option. To be able to be emotional and connected and empathetic that all requires a lateral way of viewing the world. Rather than imposing the structures that prevent, there are just endless possibilities. Once you break through the feeling of not needing to be safe within these structural binaries prevalent in our law and in bureaucracy it’s an easier way to be thinking about the world, it’s just all so much better to be feeling hopeful and see many options for the future.” It’s a beautiful thought once voiced, and our interview comes to an end at the perfect place.
