Performance Art and Architectural Projections
I like to bring place, people and performance together in new ways, to create rich emotive experiences and charge urban space with a sense of the sacred and spiritual. These works are often grand in scale and tend towards the dramatic and spectacular, with recurrent themes evocative of ritualistic acts of both celebration and warfare.
First Contact is an extended study incorporating drawings, prints, painting, sculpture and multi-media that I have been pursuing in various iterations since 2003.
The study views eighteenth-century Pacific history from a contemporary Polynesian perspective, with a focus on Cook’s voyages and the cross-cultural encounters and exchanges that shaped subsequent legacies of national and regional identity.
