GREG SEMU

Independent indigenous researcher, curator and artist Greg Semu, born New Zealand 1971, embraces Samoa as his ancestral and spiritual home. The theme of cultural displacement in the Pacific is a river that runs strongly through Semu’s artwork. His major oeuvre of photographs have community engagement and research as a starting point and often include auto portraits and the underlying Samoan Va - the vast oceans that separate the nations unite rather than divide.
