Solo exhibition at Vunilagi Vou

Last Tuesday, August 6th, I was fortunate enough to hold the opening of my first ever solo exhibition at Vunilagi Vou gallery in Otahuhu.  It is an honour to have my work recognised at this new gallery that aims to support South Auckland and Pacific artists.  

From the Vunilagi Vou website:

"As part of his postgraduate research, Henry has analysed the visual representation of climate change in Tuvalu and its relationship to “last chance” tourism in the country, a topic of global interest and broadly documented by international media. Through his time spent on the islands, Henry developed a protocol of ‘locally guided’ representation based on time and talanoa, and sharing the power of the lens.

Oceania has deep histories of [mis-]representation perpetrated by outsiders and the colonial gaze, but it is Henry’s sensitivity to his subjects, their voices and their agency as subjects in his photography, that elevates his position as an image maker of Pacific time and space.
In the Kingdom of ÅŒtāhuhu aka Little Tonga, Fofonga ‘oe kau fakafoki – The faces of those who have returned is importantly positioned to broker conversations about the politics of representation, attitudes towards deportees, redemption and the idea of return.

A limited edition of photographic prints will be available for sale with all profits going towards Dare to Dream Foundation, a new organisation aiming to mentally and physically assist the deportees in Tonga."

The exhibition will be up until 31 August at Vunilagi Vou Gallery (4/256 Great South Road ÅŒtāhuhu)
