The Motutapu Series: ‘The idea behind this series of work was triggered by the previous, where I was exploring names and places that paralleled my own experiences with land. Motutapu (Sacred Island) throughout Polynesia was a place of sanctuary from internal wars or a place for negotiations, a middle ground, a place for rejuvenation as well as a place to launch new journeys.’ Benjamin Work.
