Pai is 11. She is the beloved granddaughter of a Whangaran chief in New Zealand. Since her ancestors who rode whales to the coast to survive, their tribal chief has always been one of their male children - until Pai believes that she is destined to be the next one! Being more courageous, strong-minded and powerful than many adults, Pai struggles with traditions, the patriarchy and her grandfather to achieve her dream. Niki Caro’s Whale Rider was a beyond-the-oceans success, bringing its young actress Keisha Castle-Hughes an Oscar nomination.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
