Apparatus weaves the development of gender and identity within the indigenous culture in Aotearoa, the Māori name for New Zealand. Samoan artist Tanu Gago juxtaposes mesmerising footage of boys in their varied development of selfhood and actualisation with imagery of sculpted men from a different time and space, tracing the colonial influence on the expression of masculinity.
