Working title: Tala-E-Fonua (Reclaimed)


Tala-E-Fonua translates to “A telling of the land and its people”. My primary focus with this work is to reclaim the Tongan creation story and providing a cohesive story for people to enjoy. What started as an exploration of carved wooden Atua and feeling of displacement has resulted in a recontextualisation of the significance of these objects. As I move forward with my studio work, resulting in the end of year show, I will animating the whole story and adding soundscapes and voiceover (much like the first clip shared).
