Traditional painter, carver and designer Faraimo Paulo of Tokelau is on a mission to record his people’s history and culture. Tokelau is made up of 3 coral atolls, Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo, 500km north of Western Samoa.
As emigration and rising water levels from global warming threaten to erase the traditional Tokelauan lifestyle, Paulo has embarked on a mission to realistically capture on canvas the culture, stories and scenes of Tokelauan society, often using his family members as models. Eleni – Navigators of Polynesia represents a major survey of Faraimo Paulo’s work over the last three decades.
Blacktown Arts and TVD.media present the 360° VR tour of Eleni – Navigators of Polynesia, an immersive virtual experience of the exhibition available anywhere in the world.
