I kekahi manawa i nā makahiki he nui aku nei, i ka wā o kahi huakaʻi hoʻolimalima kālā ʻē aʻe i Sicily - i waenakonu o kahi nalu wela - ʻo wau a me kekahi mea hana noʻeau i ʻike iā mākou iho e nānā ana i nā hola o nā wikiō papeti i ka wā e ʻā ana i loko o kahi lumi moe o ka mea hana papeti. ʻO ia hoʻi, ʻike hou i nā papeti i hana ʻia ʻo Sicilian ma Kevin Atherton's 'The Return' ma The Butler Gallery, 25 mau makahiki ma hope, ua manaʻo koke ʻia. Akā ʻoiai he mau mea like nā hui ʻelua - nā puppets, kahi wela, kiʻiʻoniʻoni - ʻo kēia kino hana e pāʻani nei me ka moʻolelo laina, ua hoʻoponopono hou i koʻu hoʻihoʻi ʻana, ʻoiai ʻo ka wahi hina hina e mālama i ka ʻino loa o ka wela.

Hōʻike ʻia ʻo 'The Return' i ʻeiwa mau hana - ʻo ka hapa nui he kiʻiʻoniʻoni i hui pū ʻia me ka hana a me kekahi mau ʻāpana kiʻi a me nā kiʻi. Mai ka makahiki 1970 a hiki i kēia lā, hoʻopili kēia mau hana i ke komo mau ʻana o ka mea pena i ka hana. ʻO ia hoʻi, hoʻohana hou ʻo ia i nā hana i hala, nānā hou a hoʻoponopono hou iā lākou mai nā wahi e hiki mai ana. In Mokomoko Hou, (1972-2015), he kiʻiʻoniʻoni o ka mea pena kiʻi kahiko (e hoʻoikaika i ka melemele, nā ʻeke siliki) i hoʻopaʻa ʻia ma nā kiʻi o kona ʻōpio (me ka ʻalani pōkole). ʻOiai ʻo kona mau makahiki i ʻike ʻia, ua lanakila ʻo ia i kēia ʻōpio hoʻomaka i ʻelua mau minuke. 

ʻāpana pūlima (2018), he paʻi 3D i ka limestone, he kiʻi liʻiliʻi, pālua paʻi kiʻi. Hōʻike kekahi kiʻi i kahi peʻa - kāna pūlima ponoʻī ma kona lima i loko - i kāna pālua like. He mau minuke wale nō ke kaʻawale o ko lākou mau makahiki ma ʻaneʻi. He ʻoiaʻiʻo ka peʻa, e like me ka ʻike ʻia e ke kiʻi o ka lima o Atherton ma kahi pā kokoke. In Two Minds – Puppet/Person Version (1978-2013-2018) he hana i hana hou ʻia ʻelua. Hōʻike ia i ke kanaka ʻōpio, i hoʻolālā ʻia ma ka paia hoʻokahi, e nīnau ana i kahi kiʻiʻoniʻoni o kona ʻelemakule, i hoʻopaʻa ʻia ma ka paia e kū pono ana. ʻO ka mea nānā, paʻa ma waena o nā mea ʻelua, kowali mai kekahi a i kekahi me he mea lā e huki ʻia ana e nā kaula. Ma hope mai, ua hoʻololi ʻia lākou, nā mea pena kiʻi ʻōpio a me nā ʻelemakule e nā mana papeti. 

ʻO ka hoʻohana ʻana o Atherton iā ia iho i kāna hana ʻaʻole ia he hoʻolālā noʻonoʻo i kinohi; ua hoʻohana ʻo ia iā ia iho no ka mea ʻo ia ke koho ʻoi loa. ʻAʻole i hoʻolālā ʻia ka hoʻololi ʻana o nā kipa hou ʻana o Atherton akā ua ulu mai kāna ʻimi ʻana i ka mea, i ka makahiki 1970, he media hou. ʻO ka hoʻopaʻa mua ʻana no I Ka Manaʻo ʻElua Ua hana ʻia no ka hoʻohana ʻana i ka hana ma ka lā hoʻokahi akā i ka hala ʻana o ka manawa, ua hoʻololi ka hoʻopaʻa ʻana i ka hoʻopaʻa ʻana me ka poʻe ʻelemakule i ka hana, e hoʻonui ana i nā nīnau ʻaʻole wale no ka mea pena a me ke kanaka iho, akā no ka ʻelemakule a me ke kaumaha. 

ʻO ka hana eponymous, ʻO ka hoʻi (1972-2017), aia ma kahi wahi pouli liʻiliʻi ma ka puʻuwai o ka hōʻike. Ma kekahi pā, ʻo ka mea pena i kona wā ʻōpio, e paʻa ana i kahi papa ma hope ona, huli mālie e hōʻike, e kū ana ma kēlā ʻaoʻao, kāna hoaaloha - ma hope kāna wahine - ʻo Vicki, i make i ka makahiki 2005. Ma ke alo o ka paia, ka mea pena. , 45 mau makahiki, huli lohi, ka papa ma hope ona e hōʻike ana i ka helehelena o Vicki. He manawa e ʻike ai he kiʻi kiʻi ia mai ka hana kahiko āna e paʻa nei, aia ma kēlā ʻaoʻao.

Aia kekahi pāʻani ma ʻaneʻi - he naʻau e hoʻokumu i kēlā me kēia hana. ʻO ka lapuwale o ka hakakā ʻana, ke kamaʻilio ʻana iā ʻoe iho, ka holoi ʻana i kahi hana kahiko, ka hōʻike ʻana i ka peʻa i kahi doppelganger liʻiliʻi - ʻo kēia ka mea i kahakaha ʻia e ka hoʻomau ʻana o ka mea pena. A i loko o ka 'Digital Gallery', ma luna, hoʻokahi hola o nā hana, aia nā pōhaku me Ka Buke Nana Manu – he ekolu minuke e paopao ana i kekahi puke manu kahiko, ma ke ano o ka noonoo ana o ka pahupaʻikiʻi, hoʻopā ʻia. In Pōʻalu Tennis, hopu ka mea pena kiʻi a hoʻihoʻi i ka pōlele tennis i kona ʻōpio. Lio Hao (1987), he kiʻiʻoniʻoni 20-minuke o kahi huakaʻi kaʻaahi ma waena o Wolverhampton a me Birmingham, eia pū kekahi. ʻO ke kamaʻilio ʻana ma waena o ka mea pena a me ka hoaaloha ma kēlā ʻaoʻao, a me ka puka aniani o ke kaʻa, e hoʻopili ana i ka ʻāina e hele ana, ma kahi o hoʻokahi mile, ua hoʻonohonoho ʻia he 12 mau lio hao ʻeleʻele i ʻoki ʻia. Aia na lio ma laila.

Keia formalism underly hana like Lio Hao ʻoi aku ka maopopo ma kāna hana kiʻi kiʻi, ʻāpana pūlima (2018) a me ka Hauʻoli Pālua (1986 & 2021) a ma kāna kiʻi paʻi kiʻi a me nā kiʻi i lalo. Hāʻawi pū kēia mau hana i ka pilina ikaika o ka hōʻikeʻike i hoʻokumu pono ʻia i ka manaʻo pili manawa. ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo o Atherton a me ka nele o ka noho ʻana he ʻāpana nui o ka paona o ka hana, ʻo ia mau mea a pau e kūʻē i nā drawbacks o ka hakahaka i ʻike ʻia he ʻoki a nele i kahi kahe intuitive. ʻO ka nānā pono ʻana o ka hana, me ka 'Digital Gallery' ma luna, e lawe i nā malihini i nā iwi o ʻelua mau hola - kūpono no ka poʻe mākaukau e hoʻolilo i ka manawa. 

ʻO Clare Scott he mea pena kiʻi, mea kākau a mea noiʻi ma ka hema-hikina.
