The Total Suspension of Disbelief
Moana Nepia and Rosanna Raymond
September 19 -30
The Total Suspension of Disbelief explores boundaries between public/private experiences of being visual/performing artists and subverts notions of Pacific art as exotic/sensational with work that is more contemplative/quiet Raymond (New Zealand/Samoa) - former fashion model, activates the Pacific notion ‘Va’ in provocative performance work. Nepia (Māori/English/Irish) visual artist and former ballet dancer/choreographer from a rugby family, completed a PhD on the Māori concept of ‘Te Kore’ – the void, and is a professor at UH Manoa’s Center for Pacific Islands Studies. Fresh from conducting separate projects at the Met Museum, both artists have exhibited and lived in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Europe. This is their first time working together.
