Queer PHOTO - Alteration

Meeting at the intersections of cultural archival practices, digital technology and Queer Indigenous storytelling, Alteration presents a glimpse into the shapeshifting practice of the FAFSWAG arts collective, an Aotearoa based Queer Polynesian arts collective. Contemplating ancestry and legacy, reclaiming stolen narratives, speculating fictional futures and redefining the cultural image of Queer Pacific bodies, living on stolen land, Alteration seeks to break a now predictable and fixed set of colonial determinants.
