“I’m interested in what Pacific work looks like situated in a lens of popular culture” - Tanu Gago

Savage in the Garden is a new work by Tanu Gago, currently showing as part of Personal Space, CIRCUIT’s 2019 Artist Cinema Commissions, curated by Serena Bentley. Here Tanu talks to Mark Amery about a practice based on countering false narratives of Pasifika masculinity and overcoming cultural dislocation to build communities at home and internationally. Apologies for the quality of the audio for the first 4 minutes of this recording.
