Linda T. TV (LTTV)

“One of Linda T.’s longest ongoing projects is LTTV, a makeshift TV ‘lounge’ where a number of guests are interviewed and recorded on video. In media, choosing who gets to speak is an inherently political decision, because it involves choice: who gets to speak inevitably means also choosing who doesn’t. Undeniably, there is a strong Pacific and Māori lean in Linda T.’s selection of interviewees. A glance at the title of her video compilations shows multiple DVDs featuring the pioneering Maori filmmaker Merata Mita, poet and activist Rev. Mua Strickson-Pua, musician Tigilau Ness, as well as innumerable Pacific art compilations and Pacific artist interviews. Though the guests are carefully chosen, the interviews are not pre-planned, and they take on a sprawling and spontaneous path.” – Ioana Gordon-Smith
