Elsa Thenot works on postcolonial Pacific art (ethnological objects and contemporary art) in New Zealand, biculturalism and Maori culture and Australia and on how the historical facts have reinforced a sense of identity through specific examples ( in situ art in Pacific cities and museum). My research interests in intercultural connections between vernacular indices (patterns, gestures, shapes) and contemporary mediums attest to a geographicity art between narrative interpretation of places, symbol and emancipation.
