Holding On 2015 features the artist struggling to not be washed off a cement slab by the relentless waves on an incoming tide on the Pacific nation on Tuvalu. Tuvalu is one of the world’s lowest laying countries, and as such is already suffering the impacts of climate change. The ravaging of South Pacific nations by the effects of climate change is a strong line of cultural indictment throughout the artist’s practice.

Curated by Samantha Comte, Senior Curator.

Holding On is an official exhibition of PHOTO 2022 International Festival of Photography.
