Motutapu conclusion of a four year folau / journey alongside photographer Brendan Kitto, filled with challenges and some of the most transformative experiences of our lives - taking us from Tāmaki Makaurau to Tongatapu, Rarotonga and back. “Work and Kitto’s enquiry into Motutapu was initially centred around the shared name. What soon became apparent was a deeper connection to their own hohoko / 'akapapa (genealogy) as they travelled to three of the Motutapu locations and connected with local knowledge holders. Motutapu has become a metaphor for Work and Kitto as a gateway into or starting point for these personal journeys. Through this exhibition & publication, they offer it to the extended diaspora of Moana Oceania as a way for reconnection and reconciliation, and as a reminder of what joins communities across time and space”.
