Dreaming of Lulu is a solo exhibition by Pōneke-based artist Christopher Ulutupu. Reimagining music videos for 1970s Samoan love songs from groups such as Punialavaa, Penina Tiafau and Tiama’a, this is the first iteration of a new body of work by Ulutupu called 5 songs that explores music’s ability to travel across diasporic, cultural and intergenerational spaces.

"Sometimes, when I drive down the street from my house, I see a woman walking backwards down the footpath. The street she walks on is long and straight, but at the end there is a corner and I wonder how smoothly she walks around this. I imagine she has done this many times and is now able to move backwards without looking behind her.

I wonder about what she is doing, this seems at first strange, but the more I’ve seen her the more neutral it becomes… mostly I try to see it for what it is… I don’t mean to be voyeuristic or overly-romanticised. But, I do wonder what it means to be walking backwards down the footpath in a world where people are always walking forwards."
