A report from the liberated zone

Over at the online arts journal EyeContact I've written about Vataulua, the massive and mysterious immersive environment created by hundreds of painters at a gallery in downtown Nuku'alofa

Vataulua is full of contradiction, controversy, and joy, and some of its panels take defiant aim at violent cops and misogynistic ministers. I've contrasted the work's egalitarian spirit with the openly anti-democratic rhetoric that the theocratic opponents of 'Akilisi Pohiva's fledgling government are increasingly adopting.
