BUY SPEND SAVE NOW
Fresh Gallery Otara
Thursday 22 March – Saturday 14 April, 2007
BUY SPEND SAVE NOW is commentary on the politics of poverty and wealth and the appropriation of Pacific identity markers. Referencing contemporary commodities of exchange and debt, this exhibition will take the form of a performative multi-media installation.
As an artistic collaboration between established performance / multi-media artist Shigeyuki Kihara, emerging artist and curator Ema Tavola and cultural commentator Sieni Salesa, BUY SPEND SAVE NOW examines the ways that contemporary artists of Pacific Island heritage can draw on gallery specific forms as a means to engage with niu audiences in a transformative artistic experience.
