latai Taumoepeau

This event has passed!

Australian/Tongan artist Latai Taumoepeau is known for her brave performance art.
Onscreen, a woman dances inside a Perspex tank. Covered in flotation devices, she moves in the style of a traditional Pacific Island dancer, slowly and gracefully at first. As the tank fills with water, the movement becomes more challenging and frenetic, until eventually the dancer is completely submerged.

Latai Taumoepeau's powerful video Repatriate draws attention to the devastating impact of rising sea levels on vulnerable communities in the Pacific Islands, including her ancestral homeland of Tonga.

This exhibition is presented as part of the 2018 Perth Festival. Image courtesy of the artist.
