In Jewish folklore, a golem is an anthropomorphic clay sculpture created to perform a specific task within a community. I mould my golems as physical representations of my different communities; Jewish, NZ European and Pacific. Their task is to hold a space for these different communities, while grounding myself in my place in Aotearoa. While this is a personal journey, it is also relevant to all who navigate different spaces, cultures and diasporas.
