Christopher Ulutupu Biography

"Christopher Ulutupu's video/performance art practice explores ongoing themes around landscape, photography, and the construction of colonial narratives. Responding to early 1900's landscape photography and 'postcard' tourism, his earlier work has looked at depictions of Pacific brown people, disseminated throughout the western world: images of Pacific people sitting under coconut trees made available for European consumption. His practice seeks to re-contextualise these stereotypes and re-imagine them through video and performance, offering new ways of exploring the effects of colonisation and diaspora." Heather Galbraith, 2018
