The Motutapu Series: ‘The idea behind this new series of work was triggered by the previous, where I was exploring names and places that paralleled my own experiences with land. Motutapu (Sacred Island) throughout Polynesia was a place of sanctuary from internal wars or a place for negotiations, a middle ground, a place for rejuvenation as well as a place to launch new journeys.’
Benjamin’s new body of work takes him on a journey to these gateways throughout Polynesia, here he negotiates the tension of tending to relational spaces.
