Christopher Ulutupu

"Currently based in Wellington, born in Porirua, raised in Nelson, coming from a very large Samoan family. So you could imagine it was hard at times to be an individual, because I had always experienced life as a collective, a unit, as aiga (family). I have just finished my MFA at Massey University, where I explored what it means to be a singular entity. Imploring video and performance to express distance, belonging, borders, points of views, culture and identity. Highlighting the contradictions associated with trying to define questions about who you are? and what is your world view?" - CU
