Ke kākau nei wau kēia ʻōlelo i loko o kahi haʻiʻōlelo lōʻihi ʻelima hola, me ke poʻo Ke poʻo inoa, e hoʻolaha ʻia (2021). ʻO wau ka mea hoʻokani, a ua lōʻihi ka hana ma kahi o 45 mau minuke. Aia kekahi anaina, a ma ka nana hope aku he elima kanaka - eono me ko'u kino ponoi. Ke kākau nei au i kēia ma kaʻu iPhone, i hūnā ʻia mai ke anaina mai e kahi kāwele keʻokeʻo me nā huaʻōlelo 'Hospital Property' i ulana ʻia i loko o kona lole. Aia wau ma kahi ʻano ʻē o ka kākau ʻana i kahi ʻatikala e pili ana i kahi ʻahaʻaina aʻu e komo ai, ʻoiai e hoʻāʻo nei e hoʻomaopopo i kahi mea hiki ʻole ke hoʻohaʻahaʻa i ka ʻōlelo. 

Ma hope o kekahi manawa, hoʻololi au mai ka palapala Microsoft Word ma kaʻu kelepona i kahi Instagram live streaming o ka hana. Hiki iaʻu ke ʻike i ka poʻe e hoʻopuni ana iaʻu e kali hoʻomanawanui ana i kahi mea e hiki mai ana, ʻoiai he ʻumi mau mea nānā (aia a puni ʻo ʻIlelani a me ʻEulopa) e nānā like ana i kaʻu mau hana āpau ma ka pūnaewele. Ma ke kiʻi ma ka ʻaoʻao, ʻālohilohi ke kukui ma lalo o ke kāwele i koʻu hele mālie ʻana i kahi pākaukau. Nui nā puke, nā puke puke, nā mea a me ka pona i hoʻonohonoho pono ʻia ma luna o kona ʻili. 

Ke hana nei kēia mau mea a pau ma Catalyst Arts ma Belfast ma ke ʻano he ʻāpana o FIX21 - he biennale hana hana lōʻihi, i hana ʻia i nā pule ʻelua hope o ʻOkakopa. Ua hoʻolauleʻa ka paʻi 2021 i ka hana a me ke kiʻi ola mai Belfast a ma ʻEulopa, ma ka pūnaewele a me ke ola maoli me ka papa hana kumuhana o ka biennale i hōʻuluʻulu ʻia e ke poʻo inoa 'Super Inclusion'. I kēia makahiki ua hoʻohana ʻo Catalyst i ka hoʻonui a me ka hiki ke hana i nā hana ma ka pūnaewele (i lawe ʻia i ka wā maʻi maʻi) ma o ka hana ʻana me nā ʻoihana ʻē aʻe o ka honua. Ua nānā pū ʻia nā hana pūnaewele a pau ma ka hale kiʻi. ʻO nā hui hui pū kekahi me MS:T Performative Arts (Kanada), OUTPOST (UK), Cabbage (UK) a me AMEE (Spain). Ua nānā pū ʻo FIX21 i nā hana a nā mea pena kiʻi Belfast a kono i nā lālā Catalyst, me aʻu. 

Ua hōʻike ʻia ʻo MS:T (Mountain Standard Time). He moʻolelo e pili ana i kahi ʻīlio kokoke make (2021) na Halie Finny - he hana e hoʻomaka ana i nā kiʻi he nui o nā kino, ke kanaka a me ke kanaka ʻole. Hoʻopili ka hana i nā manaʻo o nā wahi liminal o ke kaumaha, ke ola a me ka hope. 'O ke kino' a i 'ole 'kino' ka mana'o nui o nā hana he nui o kēia biennale. I ka nānā ʻana i ka hapa nui o nā hana ma ka pūnaewele, ua hōʻea koʻu kino i Belfast i ka lā penultimate o ka ʻahaʻaina. 

I ke komo ʻana i ka hale kiʻi kiʻi, ke hoʻokani nei ʻo Husk Bennet, kahi haumāna puka hope loa a me Belfast-based artist. MENtAliyY o ka hIvE mInD (2021) i ka mea pena ma ke kikowaena o ka hale kiʻi, e noho ana ma kahi pākaukau, e ʻaʻahu ana i ka lole keʻokeʻo a me ke poʻo pepa-mâché nui. Hana ʻo Bennet i nā kaha kiʻi ma luna o ka acetate a hoʻolālā iā lākou ma nā paia o ka hale kiʻi, e ʻimi wale iā lākou me ka pena ʻeleʻele, me ka hoʻohana ʻana i nā pulupulu i hana ʻia mai ka lauoho o ka mea pena i hoʻopili ʻia i nā lāʻau lōʻihi. ʻO nā kiʻi kiʻi like me nā keiki i ka manawa koke a me ka noʻonoʻo e hoʻohaʻahaʻa i nā hui kūikawā o ka lumi hōʻikeʻike. ʻO ka manaʻo a ʻaʻole paha, ʻo ka mea i mua o ka hana o ka hoʻoholo ʻana. Huli ʻo Husk i kahi waihona o nā acetates laʻana i waenakonu o ka hana, me he mea lā e hoʻoholo ana i ka mea e hana ai. ʻO ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻo kēlā me kēia hāʻawi i ka FIX21 e like me kahi laʻana. ʻO ka hana ʻana i mea hoʻohālike e hoʻololi i ke ʻano o ia mea. E like me kā Giorgio Agamben i hōʻike ai: "ʻO ka mea i hōʻike ʻia e ka laʻana no ka papa, akā no kēia kumu ke hele nei ka laʻana i waho o kāna papa i ka manawa e hōʻike ai a hoʻokaʻawale iā ia iho"¹.

Hoʻohuli ʻia koʻu manaʻo i kēlā ʻaoʻao o ka hale kiʻi, kahi e kū nei ʻo Bojana Janković ma hope o kahi papa ʻaina ʻē aʻe, e kali hoʻomanawanui ana e kamaʻilio me kahi mea nānā. Hoʻokokoke au i ka papaʻaina me ka makaʻala, me ka makaʻala mau i ke kiʻi komo. ʻO ka hana a Janković ke poʻo inoa ʻO Gibanica wale nō (2021). Ma ka hoʻolaha paʻi, ua hoʻohiki ʻia nā meaʻai, nā nīnau, a me nā manawa ʻino, a hāʻawi ʻia nā mea a pau. Hāʻawi ʻo Janković iaʻu i kahi ʻāpana gibanica, ʻo ia kāna i haʻi mai iaʻu he kīʻaha Yugoslavia ʻono. Hoʻopili ʻia i loko o kahi pahu pahu liʻiliʻi a hāʻawi ʻia iaʻu i makana. Ua wehewehe ʻo Janković he hanauna mua ʻo ia mai Serbia a hoʻomaka ʻo ia e haʻi iaʻu e pili ana i ka hana haʻahaʻa o nā malihini Serbian e noho ana a e hana ana ma Belfast. A laila kono ʻia au e koho balota inā manaʻo wau e uku ʻia ka mea pena kiʻi i ka uku kiʻi (£200) a i ʻole ka uku haʻahaʻa loa o kahi malihini e hana ana i ka ʻai. Hoʻonāukiuki ka ʻāpana i ka mea nānā e noʻonoʻo i ka ʻoihana paʻakikī o ke ʻano o kā mākou hoʻoholo ʻana i ka waiwai ma waho a i loko o ka pōʻaiapili o ke kiʻi, a me ka lawe ʻana i ka manaʻo i nā kūlana hana weliweli o nā malihini. Nīnau au i ka mea pena kiʻi inā manaʻo lākou he hana ka hana kiʻi? Pīhoihoi ʻo ia i kēia nīnau - kāhāhā no koʻu manaʻo ʻaʻole he hana ka hana kiʻi, ʻaʻole ma ka ʻōlelo o ka wehewehe ʻana o ka hana ma lalo o ka kapitalism. 

Ua hui pū ʻia kēlā me kēia hana me kahi kikokikona e kekahi mea kākau i kono ʻia. He nui nā ʻano o kēia mau kikokikona, mai ko Padraig Regan nā footnotes ma kaʻu hana ponoʻī, a i nā pane mele mai Jennifer Alexander ma ka hana a Sinéad O'Neill-Nicholl. 

ʻAʻole hiki ke hoʻohaʻahaʻa ʻia ke koʻikoʻi o kahi ʻahaʻaina e like me FIX21 ma ke ʻano he kahua e hāʻawi ana i nā manawa i nā mea hana kiʻi hou, nā mea kākau a me nā curators e hoʻāʻo i ka hana a lawe i nā pilikia. ʻO kēlā ʻano ʻahaʻaina i hana ʻia ma ke ʻano kikoʻī i waena o kahi maʻi maʻi honua he hōʻaiʻē ia i nā alakaʻi o kēia manawa. He kiʻi hana kēia i ke kenekulia iwakāluakūmākahi, kahi i hoʻopuehu ʻia ai nā kino a hoʻopuehu ʻia ma nā ʻano o nā kahua a me nā manaʻo hoʻokaʻawale e hana i loko o ka ʻāina o ka kānalua a me ka pilikia. 

ʻO Frank Wasser kahi mea pena a me ka mea kākau ʻōlelo Irish e noho ana a hana ma Lākana.
