Enjoy is pleased to present a new series of moving image works and public programs by the artist collective Witch Bitch, curated by FAFSWAG’s Tanu Gago.

Witch Bitch came about through the constant talanoa had between the artists Manu Vea, Pati Solomona Tyrell and Sione Monu regarding Polynesian spirituality as a drive towards a cultural discovery of self. Witch Bitch’s moving image and performance pieces speak to their reclamation of space within the Vā – the contextual and metaphysical space that exists between all things.

Their work serves as a vessel for the re-writing and imagining of queer Polynesian spiritual experiences. As an expression of indigeneity that acts to connect them to other queer Brown bodies and in turn their communities, customs, heritage and spirits, Statuesque Anarchy further explores the trio's experiences of living in diaspora in tandem with their exploration of spirituality.

This exhibition coincides with the Wellington Pride Festival Tū whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Tara and is accompanied by a public program of free talks, screenings, and live performances on Saturday 11 March.

FAFSWAG Arts Collective acknowledge the support of Creative New Zealand in the development of this project.

Presented by: Witch Bitch
