Moving Image Art Installation in Tahinga Marae
Wairoa Maori Film Festival is pleased to present the NZ premiere of 100 Tikis, the latest work by Hudson, New York-based artist Dan Taulapapa McMullin (Samoan). 100 Tikis is an appropriation art piece that interrogates Western (and Eastern) colonialism of the Pacific Islands peoples from Hawaii to West Papua, through an examination of tiki kitsch, tourism, militarism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism and the genocide of indigenous peoples.
“We’re proud to present this multimedia moving image art work in what is ostensibly a cinematic context. We present it with the kind permission of the artist, as an intriguing social critique, and as a work in progress.” – Leo Koziol, Wairoa Maori Film Festival
