Samoan artists Lalovai and Nikki are a married couple. In this exhibition, they explore artistic expressions of their six-year love affair, against a backdrop of Samoan cultural norms that are uncomfortable with public displays of romantic love.

Paintings, tattoos and photographs come together to tell a subversive story of a life built on art and love in Samoa.
