Momoe i manu ae ala atea'e Tasker

17cm x 16cm (Paper size varies slightly)

This is a series of small identical prints approximately 17x16cm in size each individually wrapped in clear plastic for protection and including a small printed faʻafetai/thank-you card from Momoe.


Re-Generation of Indigenous land our tupuga are always present. Above and below, they surround us. A malu sits center at the top of the border, a symbol of protection representing the four walls of a fale, also crawling within the piece are centipedes, adding more symbolic representation of protection and guidance.

Traditionally, Sāmoans believe in dying in their home and being buried on their land the next day to prevent the spirit from causing misfortune for their aiga. The connection between blood and land is very significant to Fa'a Sāmoa, the Sāmoan Way. Laws have been created to protect land, continuously keeping it in indigenous hands within the family.'


Hand carved from lino block & hand pressed onto paper.

These are all hand made pieces. No two prints are the same.


'Momoe i manu ae ala atea'e Tasker, an afakasi agitator, is a multidisciplinary artist creating works rooted in expressions of solidarity which celebrate and investigate Pasifika diaspora identity. British/Sāmoan-Chinese teine raised in London, rooted in Taitoko, Aotearoa'
