The Raft of the Tagata Pasifika


Visual artist, photographer, community engaging story teller. New Zealand born and currently Australian based Greg Semu is actively involved in responding and researching post colonial residue of historical pasts critiquing and correcting misconceptions deliberately secreted to demoralise and displace indigenous peoples and cultures. Conversing through the metaphor of the photographic image, Semu interrogates introduced hegemonic narratives and reinterprets events and evidence for tomorrows future.

Constantly evolving and augmenting the visual vocabulary to express and communicate ideas and concepts in multiple languages it is clear Greg borrows heavily from his autodidact Francophone, european and german linguistics and interjects it into his art practice navigating the dialogue of diaspora of the pacific regions.
