Imagined by Mareva Bouchaux and supported by the Association Reva I Tahiti, the sea, spring & Tahiti on 12, 13 and 14 April 2019 in Toulon. Housed on the Domaine de Massacan, the 60 trainees ended up for an exciting weekend devoted to Tahitian culture in all its forms: dance, music, language, cooking, weaving… Between toere, pareos and raw fish, Mareva bouchaux, vainui dubern and teanivai apini generously dispensed their knowledge and culture. A unique event that brought together the children and lovers of Fenua on the French Riviera.
I spent three days photographing and filming all this little world (to eat too but that should not be said haha) and especially immortalize these fleeting moments of complicity, common passion and learning so that everyone can keep track of moments spent together in the sound of ukuleés.
Having grown up in Tahiti, I had long felt a kind of relatively complex frustration to express. Since our return to metropolis, my family and I have been living in remembrance, and nostalgia too, of what we have experienced. However, I am of Italian origin, I was born in France and it is not so simple to feel legitimate to carry, convey, convey, a culture that is not that of my ancestors. I particularly thank Mareva for his confidence and for having made me relive all these memories. Mauruuru
