A Study of a Samoan Savage - Yuki Kihara

Added to MyNight

Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery,

A Study of a Samoan Savage responds, in part, to the recent problematic treatment of Polynesian men as powerful but primitive players in rugby culture. Large format photographs and a life-sized projection are displayed alongside rare archives to critique the historical and ongoing fetishising of Samoan men as athletic specimens.
