Tom talks to Ema Tavola, founder of Vunilagi Vou - a new gallery, consultancy and shop in the heart of Ōtāhuhu. Ema talks to their recentshow LAIN BLO YU MI – Our People Our Lines . It was an exhibition that payed homage to Auckland-based Papua New Guinean-Australian mark maker, Julia Mage’au Gray, and her significant role in the revival of Melanesian female tattoo practice. She spoke about their new FAFSWAG 6 show, and reflects on FAFSWAG's humble beginnings in her living room. Tavola kept giving little hints at how varied and exciting her life has been of late - speaking trips to Morocco, Hong Kong, and The Democratic Republic of Congo (to speak to the legacy of Bauhaus) have featured in her life.
