The Last Dance by Shigeyuki Kihara

Shigeyuki Kihara | Pataka | Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going? lifts its title from a major painting by Paul Gauguin. In this series of photographs, the artist performs a fictitious narrative in the guise of a resurrected 19th century Samoan woman examining current Samoan culture and society.
