Slow Boil was co-created by kaupapa Māori community group and kai security advocates Boil Up Crew and a group of contributing practitioners spanning architecture, community advocacy, design, food sovereignty, software and the visual arts. A series of wānanga throughout the duration of the exhibition focused on the central question of how can the sharing of kai transform how we conceive of knowledge, resilience and mana motuhake? From this starting point, new works were collectively produced and installed in the exhibition space alongside a cinema programme and existing investigative works by Forensic Architecture.
