Apenisa (2019) for Marama Dina - Now Showing at Campbelltown Arts Centre / by Torika Bolatagici

Installation view of Apenisa (2019) at Campbelltown Arts Centre, NSW.

The exhibition Marama Dina opened last weekend at Campbelltown Arts Centre and I’m thrilled to be exhibiting my new video work Apenisa (2019) alongside Margaret Aull, Donita Vatuinaruku Hulme, Yasbelle Kerkow, Joana Monolagi, Dulcie Stewart, Salote Tawale, Luisa Tora, MC Trey aka Thelma Thomas and Emele Ugavule.

Featuring new commissions by 10 artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, Marama Dina considers female iTaukei identities in the diaspora, be that away from Fiji or away from village life. The artists each consider how their blood lines and contemporary lives come together, and how they embody the past, present and future. Constructed within the exhibition is a vale ni soqo (village meeting house) offering a space where Pasifika communities can gather, learn and share knowledge.
