Salt 8: salt 8 will feature the work of Shigeyuki Kihara, a prominent artist based in New Zealand. Kihara investigates the complexities of cultural identity, colonialism, representation, gender roles, and spirituality through performance, photography, and video. In the UMFA’s salt gallery, Kihara will present large-scale looping projections of her 2012 videos Galu Afi and Siva in Motion. Inspired by the traditional Samoan dance Taualuga, both videos are lamentations for the loss caused by the 2009 tsunami as well as poetic meditations on Samoa’s colonial past and future climate change. Adjacent to the salt gallery, Kihara will stage a photographic intervention with our Pacific Island collection.
