Zac Langdon-Pole’s projects often take their point of departure in social structures of representation and organisation in order to question how and for whom such structures are posed. His current research relates specifically to the regions of Southeast Asia and the South West Pacific, and is centred on the mythology and historical cultural exchange of the so-called ‘birds of paradise’ from Papua New Guinea. Langdon-Pole explores ‘the exotic’ as an idea that does not exist prior to its ‘discovery’ but rather is formed in the very act of discovery itself.
