Biography

Jeremy Leatinu’u works in performance art, public intervention, video and installation. His practice has included exploring the relationships between site-specific performances and public interventions; often presenting these outcomes as video installations within a gallery setting.

Leatinu’u is interested in ways to test, reveal and make connections between associated meanings and properties of a place: its history, identity, governance or use and their relationship with each other and the artist.
