|Abstract: ||Rosanna Raymond is a performance/ installation/body adornment artist and writer. A New Zealand-born Pacific Islander of Samoan descent, she is currently living and working in London with her family. A founding member of the acclaimed Pacific Sisters performance art collective in New Zealand. A ‘Tusitala’ or storyteller at heart, Raymond’s work takes a variety of forms ranging from installation works to spoken word to body adornment, with pieces held in gallery, museum and private collections around the world. She has forged a role over the past fifteen years as a producer and commentator on contemporary urban Pacific Island culture, fusing traditional practises with modern innovations and techniques. Raymond specialises in customising the images with her own drawings that tell stories of the work.|
